Dr. Nick J. BrunoA message to ULM faculty and staff from ULM President Nick J. Bruno

Dear Colleagues,

This is not the kind of news that I wish to bring to you today, but as we all understand, higher education in Louisiana has continued to be negatively impacted by declining State support.

With that brings difficult decisions that I do not take lightly as to its impact on those employees that are directly affected and upon those who will be asked again to do more.

Today, I am announcing my decision to eliminate an additional 25 positions by January 1, 2014.

Within the 25 positions, 19 are currently filled positions and six will be eliminated through retirements and vacant positions that will not be filled. The completion of the implementation of the reorgnization will take place over three years.

Career counseling will be available for those impacted by this work force reduction.

We will also announce the reorganization of the university's five colleges, which will be consolidated into three, becoming the College of Arts, Education and Sciences; the College of Health and Pharmaceutical Sciences; and the College of Business and Social Sciences.

The Graduate School remains unchanged.

You may wish to view the press release which has been sent to the media.

The vice presidents and deans have worked diligently, to develop a plan that adheres to our Strategic Plan while considering how we will maintain the excellence that is ULM.

I alone have made this decision and I am saddened to have to do so.

However, as President of ULM, it is my duty to ensure the stability and progress of the university and I will continue to do that to the best of my ability.

Sincerely,

Dr. Nick J. Bruno
President
