Since 1896 Oakwood University has served to transform lives and raise leaders through quality Christian education. Over the last century, many well-known leaders of industry began their career paths on the campus on what is now known as Oakwood University and some while using their post 9/11 GI education benefits. Countless preachers, teachers, scientists, doctors, lawyers, journalists, musicians, actors, judges, politicians, nurses, and many other alumni have added to the Oakwood legacy. What is our legacy? Our legacy is the mark our talented alumni have left on the world. Our diverse student-body including active military and veterans, have done just this.  Oakwood is consistently recognized by national media, business and educational associations: US News and World Report ranks it perennially among the nation's Best Colleges, both in terms of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Regional Colleges/South categories; the magazine also ranks Oakwood among the top ten HBCUs with highest graduation rates. In its first-ever HBCU ranking, the September 2012 EBONY Magazine top-ranked Oakwood's science program. Additionally, Oakwood is the nation's fifth-ranked producer of undergraduate black applicants to medical schools, according to the Association for American Medical Colleges. Oakwood's ISO 9001: 2008 designation distinguishes it as the first and only HBCU, as well as the first and only Alabama and/or SDA higher education institution, so qualified.
