It’s commonly called “giving back”.
But for CARROT Founder and CEO Michael Antaran, it’s more like “getting more” – as in “more fulfillment” for having the opportunity to take a very hands-on leadership role with his alma mater.
Antaran has been named to Oakland University’s Graduate Advisory Council.
The Graduate Study Advisory Council's mission is to support OU's graduate education by contributing to the development of its strategic direction and implementation of strategic objectives.
“It really is a tremendous honor to have the opportunity to serve OU,” Antaran said. “This university has played an instrumental role in any success I’ve achieved, and I’m just so happy for the chance to work side-by-side with some amazing people on the Board to help OU in any way possible.”
The Graduate Study Advisory Council is an invitation only position facilitated by the Dean of Graduate Education. This position will support the work of Graduate Study and provide mission-based leadership and strategic advocacy. The Dean-Council relationship is a partnership.
This is the third time OU has honored Antaran in recent months. This past February, Oakland University’s School of Health Sciences named Antaran to its new Board of Advocacy and Resource Development (BOARD). And late last year, he was invited to give the Commencement Address during OU’s December graduation ceremonies.
