A conversation with Dale Lunsford, president of LeTourneau University
LeTourneau University is unusual among Christian colleges for a number of reasons. First, its founder, R.G. LeTourneau was an industrialist and inventor with more than 300 patents to his credit, and he founded the school as a technical college, whereas the majority of Christian colleges got their start as liberal arts or Bible colleges. LeTourneau is also overwhelmingly male. More than 70 percent of its students are male, and more than 20 percent are African-American. One in six of the school’s 3000 undergraduates were homeschooled.
Dale Lunsford has been president of LeTourneau since 2007. This conversation took place at the National Religious Broadcasters’ conference in Nashville.
