About Oral Roberts University


Oral Roberts University is a Spirit-empowered university, founded in the fires of evangelism and upon the unchanging precepts of the Bible. The university was founded as a result of the evangelist Oral Roberts' obeying God's mandate to build a university on God's authority and the Holy Spirit. God’s commission to Oral Roberts was to: “Raise up you students to hear My voice, to go where My light is dim, where My voice is heard small, and My healing power is not known, even in the uttermost bounds of the earth. Their work will exceed yours, and in this I am will pleased.”

The mission of ORU is to build Holy Spirit-empowered leaders through whole person education to impact the world with God’s healing.

Founded to educate the whole person—spirit, mind and body—Oral Roberts University promises a thorough education in the context of a vibrant Christ-centered community.

ORU is a place for advancing knowledge, pursuing intellectual discovery and building life-long friendships. ORU students are empowered on the quest for wholeness; having the time of their lives, while preparing for their life's mission.

A comprehensive university dedicated to student outcomes, ORU offers more than 77 undergraduate majors and 65 undergraduate minors, as well as 14 master's-level programs and three doctoral degrees. Faculty members educated at the nation's top graduate schools serve as academic, professional, and spiritual mentors to students.
