Message from the President

Welcome to the University of Louisiana at Monroe!

A university defined by the vibrancy of its students, ULM stands out as a regional educational resource to help students reach their academic goals and launch a career.

We continue 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.  Last year ULM received a record number of national recognitions for our academic programs.  These not only enhance the university’s reputation, but also enhances the value of your degree from ULM.

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 situation, we welcome you to make ULM your academic home.

With a Spring 2015 enrollment of over 7,800 students, our students find that our campus has a friendly staff eager to serve you and exceptional faculty willing to provide individualized attention.

ULM is home to many unique programs that draw students from around the world including: atmospheric science; agribusiness; toxicology; marriage and family therapy, gerontology, and the only state-supported pharmacy program. 

The aviation department offers a certification program in unmanned aircraft systems (drones). This certification is important to graduates who want to land one of over 1,000 new, high-paying jobs created over the next two years as predicted by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International.

Our accounting program is among the elite few in the world that has earned separate accreditation from AACSB-International—the premier accreditation agency for business accounting. Our toxicology bachelor’s degree is one of only six in the nation.

ULM also offers online degrees through eULM—a fast-tracked program offering over 30 degrees in various fields. This commitment to distance learning ensures that ULM can serve students’ needs on and off campus.

Your time at ULM will be full of study but also full of fun. ULM recognizes over 150 student organizations ranging from professional, to Greek, to religious. Athletics is a constant favorite among students from football and women’s soccer in the fall to basketball and women’s tennis in the spring. Student events are the foundation of your college experience, and I encourage you to take part as often as possible.

Whatever your area of interest, we are committed to you and appreciate your demonstrated ability and determination.

I welcome you to ULM.
