ORU LAWSUIT: NEW PREZ?

Yesterday, my momma sent me this article from Fox23 which explains that the ORU presidential “search committee is recommending Southeastern University President Mark Rutland for the job.”  Of course the Tulsa World has the story as well.

Here’s some Mark Rutland info:

  • Southeastern University bio.
  • Global Servants profile.
  • Books by Mark Rutland.

My momma, who remembers Dr. Rutland from our days in Texas at Aldersgate UMC where he was a friend of then pastor, Terry Teykl, describes him as a warm, intelligent, engaging person and she’s very excited about him potentially becoming ORU’s new president.

Channel 8, and Channel 7 confirm the Mark Rutland story while Channel 2 announces layoffs at ORU.  While Ryan and I were in Tulsa, we spoke with several faculty members.  There seemed to be a real sorrow at the impending layoffs, but a sense of understanding that it was necessary to continue to make improvements. We trust that current leadership are doing their best with the resources they’ve been given.

In other news, ORU has made a motion to dismiss Huddleston’s lawsuit according to Christian Web News.
