Fri, Sep 19 2008

LeTourneau University President Dr. Dale A. Lunsford was named to the board of directors for the Independent Colleges and Universities of Texas to serve a two-year term through 2010. 
ICUT is a nonprofit organization of 40 accredited private universities in Texas which helps legislative policymakers understand the importance and value of independent institutions of higher education. ICUT promotes increased funding for student financial aid programs, like the Texas Equalization Grant program. It also supports legislation that preserves the tax-exempt status of private colleges and universities.
ICUT institutions educate nearly 114,500 students across the state at universities offering a wide range of educational programs. Private schools provide a healthy source of competition for students, faculty and research grants which strengthens higher education in Texas.  ICUT schools employ more than 22,700 across the state and spend an estimated $2.4 billion in their local communities to provide education.
