A message to ULM faculty and staff from ULM President Nick J. Bruno
As has been the practice over the last several years, I have asked the vice presidents to implement a hiring and spending freeze for the duration of this fiscal year.
Advertising for faculty positions for the fall term may proceed with approval from the appropriate dean and the vice president for academic affairs.
In addition, those supply and other essential items for clinical programs will not be impacted, but will require the appropriate vice president’s approval.
This does not apply to those departments funded through 2, 3 and 8 accounts (restricted, auxiliary and agency funds), however, these should also be utilized very conservatively.
This action allows us to positively position ourselves to better address year-end demands. I appreciate your support and regret we are forced to take these actions.
Dr. Nick J. Bruno
