About
Oral Roberts University, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a private four year institution founded in 1963 as a result of a mandate received by evangelist Oral Roberts from God to establish an educational institution. The school began operations in 1963 and received its accreditation in 1971 from the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Schools and the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.

In 2007 the school was burdened by debt and having difficulty meeting its financial obligations. By 2009 the school had received donations allowing the school to clear its debts and operate without that burden. Since that time the school has utilized its resources to upgrade campus facilities, add additional buildings, refine programs and offer a better educational experience overall for students.
