DONOR RECOGNITION PROGRAM

The Donor Recognition Program was established to recognize donors and to express gratitude to those donors who have distinguished themselves by their generous support the University through their ongoing and significant gifts.

Since 1931, the University of Louisiana at Monroe has provided outstanding academic, cultural and service opportunities for the citizens of Louisiana. ULM continues this valued tradition through an even stronger commitment in all areas of university life — as students in the classroom, on stage, in the research laboratory, or on the athletic field — strive to be their very best.

As a donor, your gift has a significant impact on current and future generations of students.
