Oakland University president makes $1M gift to school

By: | October 4, 2021

Oakland University President Ora Pescovitz said she wants to attract extraordinarily talented high school students to the college to make the school the region’s “university of choice.”

That’s why Pescovitz is making a $1 million gift to OU, the Rochester-based university that she has led since 2017.

The gift, to be announced Monday, will be used for scholarships to attract creative and innovative students who are expected to be future community, civic and business leaders.

“These are the kids that go on to do remarkable things, change the world,” said Pescovitz during an interview with The Detroit News. “I want to attract students who may not be thinking about Oakland. We have so much to offer them.”
