ORU Search Committee Recommends Mark Rutland

Oral Roberts University’s Presidential Search Committee recommends Mark Rutland for university president.
Rutland, president of Southeastern University in Florida, will be on campus the last week of January.
He will meet with the board of trustees, a number of representatives from various university stakeholder groups. The board will then vote on the candidate.
ORU has been under fire recently for mismanagement of school funds and lawsuits between the school and three professors who allege they were wrongfully terminated from their posts, a student and a former accountant.
Most recently, the university laid off 53 staff and cut 40 vacant positions, a move expected to reduce ORU’s annual budget by $3.5 million.
