A message to ULM faculty and staff from ULM President Nick J. Bruno
In the event you have not heard or read of our students' desire to seek options regarding the natatorium, please find below a link which will connect you to the overview student leaders provided to individuals in the community.
I am very proud that our students have addressed this matter with such professionalism and in a spirit of collaboration.
From the beginning of this process, our students have sought the opportunity to develop options that all students could consider this fall.
The current facility is in need of significant repairs and has limited usage by our students, who pay for the operations through student fees. Community members who utilize the natatorium expressed interest in renovating the nat and possibly assuming operational control. They will continue to explore options available to them.
Several meetings have been held which have been very constructive. Please note that a revised membership fee schedule is included and will become effective September 1, 2011.
I will continue to keep you posted on this issue.
Have a great weekend.
Nick J. Bruno, Ph.D.
