ASSOCIATE VICE PRESIDENT FOR BUSINESS AFFAIRS AT ULM TO
Dr. Nick Bruno, Associate Vice President for Business Affairs
at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, pending approval by
The University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors, will
take the Vice President for Business Affairs post on Jan. 1,
2003, following the retirement of current Vice President Robert
Turner, effective Dec. 31, 2002.
"Robert made it known to me that he planned to retire at
the end of this year. In order to prepare us for Robert's eventual
retirement, a national search was conducted in order to hire
Nick, anticipating that he would fill the Vice Presidency. It's
good that Robert stayed and helped Nick learn this system in
order to assure a seamless transition," said Dr. James Cofer,
President of ULM.
Dr. Bruno received his Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from
the University of Mississippi. Bruno was hired as the Associate
Vice President for Business Affairs at ULM in August 2002. His
previous position was Assistant Vice President for Special Initiatives
at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond.
