The rush is on for Oakwood University friends and constituents to find a wealth of valuable documents, materials, and pictures. This research site puts the pick-axe in your hands to dig beneath the surface for nuggets of historical, cultural, and enrichment value!OU GoldMine is comprised of 4 main Documents On Command (DOC) sites. This website is published as a complimentary service of Oakwood University, Special Projects Initiative (SPI). While SPI coordinators select OU GoldMine material, naturally the views and positions presented in the documents and materials are those of the writers and researchers.
To fulfill our mission -- to foster relationships, and to accurately communicate “the Oakwood story” to our local and global communities – the Office of Integrated Marketing & Public Relations serves as a liaison between the University and the community, including local and national media. This office publicizes the activities and achievements of the University’s students and employees, and promotes campus events, through internal and external University communications, publications and advertising. Staff members also assist in projects that develop and strengthen the University's relationship with the Huntsville community.
The office is located in East Hall, the most historic building on campus, which was built in 1909. The building has served as a sanitarium, residence hall for academy boys, orphanage, faculty residence, and at one time housed the Department of English. Renovated in the mid-1990s, East Hall now houses the Division of Advancement and Development.
