The Oracle Mission Statement:
The Oracle is the premier student news media organization of Oral Roberts University. Our mission is to serve the ORU community with accurate and relevant media content with integrity, creativity, and a focus on continual improvement.
Student Media Mission:
Student Media informs and entertains the ORU community through accessible, diverse, and relevant media that reports and preserves ORU’s integrity.
As members of the Oracle staff, we promise YOU...
The Oracle staff promises:
1. To be professional in all we do and wherever we go. Writers, photographers, and designers alike, our actions, what we say, and how we dress all speak for the news organization we represent.
2. To give you nothing but the best—rich stories free of spelling and grammatical errors and photos that tell a story. We’ll strive for accuracy.
3. To represent all of ORU, not just our friends.
4. To report news right when it happens, not a day later.
5. To listen. We sincerely want your feedback. How are we doing? Good, bad, or just plain awful? This is all for you. Help us make it the best it can be. We’re listening.
6. To raise up our staff. We promise to train the students who come through our doors. We aren’t going to send out just anyone. We’re going to take the time to do everything in our power to teach everyone on staff how to be the best they can be at their craft.
7. To take this seriously. We’re here not because we get paid a lot or are coerced into it. We’re here because the Oracle means a lot to us. We take it seriously.
8. To do what it takes to tell the whole story. We’ll do our research and tell it how it really is. We strive for the truth.
9. To write and take photos on what’s relevant and matters to you.
10. To give you opportunities to be published—to let your voice be heard and work seen.
