Office of Alumni Relations

As OCU graduates walk through the campus archway to take their places in the world, they take seriously the motto, "Go forth to serve." Nearly 11,000 Oakland City University alumni serve all over the world today, in education, ministry, business, science, and the arts.

The Oakland City University Alumni Association focuses on three primary areas:

  1. Creating clear, focused communication to empower alumni advocates.
  2. Promoting an alumni culture of engagement connecting through our common passion for OCU.
  3. Engaging lives of alumni to create community.
  4. Preserving the history of our alma mater

Alumni Association Membership

In November 2015, OCU introduced a new, simplified dues structure.  We now offer two levels of dues memberships.  Alumni may pay $50 per person/couple Mighty Oak Annual Membership or $1,000 Living Oak Lifetime Membership.
