University of Louisiana at Monroe says
Since my appointment as the eighth president of ULM in the Fall of 2010, I have heard from countless friends and supporters who reinforce my belief that this university is on the precipice of one of the most exciting phases in its 80-year history.
We are poised as never before to advance our mission and offer an excellent education, not only to the region and citizens of Louisiana, but also well beyond the state's geographic boundaries.
Whether coming to us after graduation from a traditional high school, or returning to finish a degree that was started years ago using one of our many online programs, I am sure you will find not only a quality academic environment, but one in which you will be treated as family.
Maybe you are an international student eager to learn in an American university, or a community college student seeking a transfer to a four-year university - whatever the reason for your visit, we welcome you and invite you to make ULM your home away from home!
We all know that in order to fully embrace our future, we must also never forget to celebrate our past, and what an amazing past we have had at ULM. Even as our beautiful 238-acre campus continues to grow along the banks of Bayou DeSiard, our campus community continues traditions that began decades ago to promote our academic, social, and cultural lives together.
With a student enrollment annually approaching 9,000, you will find friendly staff ready to serve you and exceptional faculty willing to provide individualized attention, while also offering an array of challenging opportunities. ULM prides itself in the rigor of its academic programs.
Some of our academic highlights include hosting the state's only public College of Pharmacy, with graduates who can boast a passage rate of over 95 percent, as well as a toxicology program that is the only one of its kind in the southeastern United States.
Our College of Business Administration accounting graduates recently exceeded the passage rate of graduates from every public school in Louisiana taking the CPA examination. In addition, our College of Education's teacher preparation programs have been highlighted in the New York Times and on the nationally syndicated public radio program, Marketplace.
Our College of Arts and Sciences offers the only freshman biology research program in the state that participates in the National Genomics Research Initiative, sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute; and finally, the Louisiana State Board of Nursing has published results from the NCLEX exam that show our College of Health Sciences produces School of Nursing graduates who outscored students from all other bachelor degree programs in the state.
Albert Einstein said, "No problem can be solved by the same consciousness that created it. We need to see the world anew." We are adapting to the changing environment of higher education in a global market.
I am confident this university will continue to produce high quality graduates who contribute to society at every level, and I extend to you a personal invitation to Discover U at ULM!
