Rochester Hills — Oakland University says a $5 million gift will be used to boost the School of Business Administration and the Department of Athletics.

The school announced Monday the commitment is from Craig and Ann Stinson of Rochester. The university will enhance the business school’s Stinson Student Advancement Center and name the Stinson Family Student-Athlete Development Center in Athletics.

Craig and Ann Stinson are alumni of Oakland University. The longtime donors to the school say they expect their latest gift will help improve future success among business students and student-athletes. They’ve made prior gifts totaling more than $530,000.

Oakland University’s campus spans more than 1,400 acres in the Oakland County cities of Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills.
