Oral Roberts University Moves to Increase Hispanic Enrollment

TULSA, Okla. (AP)  Oral Roberts University and the National Hispanic
Christian Leadership Conference have signed an agreement that could
make ORU the school of choice for many Hispanic Christians. In an
effort to increase diversity on campus, the university plans to
establish the Jesse Miranda Center to serve as a recruitment center
and fellowship hall for Hispanic students. It also will serve as a
research and development wing for Hispanic Christian programs.

Minority undergraduate enrollment at the Oklahoma school currently is
at 22 percent, with just more than 5 percent being Hispanic. The Rev.
Samuel Rodriguez, who heads the National Hispanic Christian Leadership
Conference, calls Oral Roberts University "the flagship of charismatic
Christian universities." And he says, "It's the right school for the
Hispanic Christian community."
