Raider Alumni & Friends of Athletics
It is with pride and deep commitment to student success that I along with past coaches and administration present to you the Raider Vision Statement:
Oakland Community college’s Intercollegiate sports program will be recognized locally as well as nationally as a premier two year experience with emphasis on academic and athlete excellence, focused on leadership, community, and personal growth. The Department will serve the college, community and student with the integrity and accountability required to achieve the highest athletic and scholastic standards.
To help the student athletes and the department achieve this vision we have created an opportunity for alumni & friends of athletics to provide financial support for athletic scholarships, travel, and equipment needs through two endowment funds.
Since 1964, Oakland Community College has provided an affordable, quality education for Oakland and surrounding counties. This institution has given many student athletes the opportunity to continue their educational endeavors while representing this institution on a state, regional, and national level through athletic competition.
As the Director of Athletics, I strive each year to instill the department’s guiding principles as follows:
- Academic Excellence;
- Value to College and Community;
- Leadership and Personal Growth;
- Athletic Excellence; and
- Program Integrity

Many young men and women today find challenges in reaching for and continuing their educational goals. Your contribution will go directly towards these young students as they face those challenges while representing the institution as athletes through athletic competition locally, regionally, and nationally!
