Quick Facts


Oakland University's School of Education and Human Services was recognized in 2002 as the largest professional school campus-wide, with over 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled.  To bring it all under one roof Carlotta and Dennis Pawley Hall was designed, planned, and built in merely 18 months.

Pawley Hall contains 5 floors of classrooms, instructional labs, faculty and administrative offices, and the Educational Resources Lab, which allows students full access to electronic and physical books and materials needed for their teaching coursework.  Housed within Pawley's walls is the Lowry Early Childhood Center, a source of support and instruction to parents, students, and children who are seeking a safe and engaging environment in which to learn and grow.
