The Honors College

Welcome to the Honors College!

The Honors College at Oakland University is one of the most established honors colleges in the nation, and was founded on the principles set out by Matilda and Alfred Wilson when they donated their entire Meadow Brook estate to establish Oakland University. Those principles are that aspirational and talented young people benefit from the personal and individual interest of high-quality university faculty and staff. We provide such an environment for students, assisting them to excel in all their endeavors.

Here in  Oak View Hall, we explore ideas and activities collaboratively with colleagues across the university. We aim to offer students in the Honors College, and the faculty who teach them, the opportunity to be national and global leaders in advancing undergraduate research. This provides building blocks for brilliant future careers, supporting opportunities for innovative learning that supports unique university experiences.
