Cru was started in 1951 on the UCLA campus by Bill and Vonette Bright. In 1951, UCLA was 98% white.
Here’s whatÂ UCLA looks like today:
- 34% asian
- 27% white
- 19% hispanic
- 13% international student
The entireÂ U.S. college population is predicted, by some, to be majority minority by 2020.
This is some great vision from Sam Osterloh, Cru’s Executive Director of Ethnic Field Ministry.
Nationwide in Cru, 1 in 27 gospel presentations result in someone trusting Christ. For Destino (a Cru ministry dedicated to raising up leaders from the Latino and Hispanic community), that number is 1 in 7.
