Oakland Community College
Celebrates Founders Day

OCC's Founders Day - March 19

Community Service Key Theme of Founders Celebration

OCC honors the public spirit and contributions of those who established the College and set it on the path to the success it enjoys today.  Oakland Community College's Board of Trustees designated founder George Mosher's birthday, March 19, as Founders Day.  Since 2013, OCC has invited its employees, students, retirees, alumni and community members to volunteer during March to honor the College's founder.  With the theme "A Tradition of Excellence," OCC celebrates its fourth annual Founders Day.  A major feature is a call to community service.  Participants who complete four or more service hours will become of the "Founders Service Club."  This year, prizes will be awarded to the top earning volunteers.  The commitment to community held by OCC's founders still resonates after 50 years - community is our middle name.
