University of Louisiana at Monroe — President

The Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System invites letters of interest, résumés, and nominations for the position of president of University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM). The individual selected as president will assume the position during the 2020-21 academic year.

Founded in 1931, ULM is a regional, selective admissions university classified as a Doctoral/Professional university. ULM is one of nine universities in the University of Louisiana System, the state’s largest system of higher education. The University offers 96 undergraduate and graduate degrees to over 9,000 traditional, non-traditional, and distance-learning students. The 238-acre campus located in northeastern Louisiana is home to the only state-supported College of Pharmacy and to the future branch campus of the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine which is slated to begin its first semester in July 2020.

The Board and university are seeking a president with academic and senior administrative success who will be a visionary, entrepreneurial leader; who is committed to fundraising, economic development, and community relations; and who is student-centered. Further, the president should empower others through transparent communication, collaborative management, and shared governance.

Candidates will be expected to have high-level executive experience with demonstrated performance of exceptional quality. Those holding an earned doctorate and having a background in higher education administration are preferred. Management experience in other fields will also be considered.
