Oral Roberts Univ. settles lawsuit
Cameron Strang added to the board of trustees.
Oral Roberts University reached a settlement with two former professors who sued the university a year ago, alleging that they were wrongfully terminated, the Tulsa World reports.
The details of the settlement were confidential. The professors alleged that they were forced out after detailing financial and ethical wrongdoing by Richard Roberts, the school's former president who resigned last year.
The university has gone through rapid changes in the past year, including new leadership. Mart Green, whose family founded Hobby Lobby and the Mardel Christian stores chain, was made chairman of the board of trustees. (Clarification) Cameron Strang, founder of Relevant magazine, told me earlier this month that he has also been added to the board of trustees at his alma mater.
