Leadership & Faculty

Oaksterdam’s dedicated faculty and staff are leading the way in the cannabis industry with expert educators, cultivators, and business pioneers


Board of Directors

Oaksterdam operates as a not-for-profit* corporation, with all proceeds reinvested into the school’s staff, programs, scholarships, and advocacy. Oaksterdam’s Board of Directors ensures OU is fiscally responsible to uphold our long-term stability. They serve as ambassadors in the community, relentlessly spreading Oaksterdam’s mission and connecting us with people and organizations within their areas of expertise. Our Administrators make sure everything is running smoothly behind the scenes at OU.

* Like a non-profit, Oaksterdam operates for social benefit, however current federal law prevents cannabis-related entities from acquiring official nonprofit 501(c)(3) status, something OU’s leaders are actively seeking to change.
