ULM to Receive Grant Funding From State Farm

The University of Louisiana at Monroe will receive a grant from State Farm to support the development of online courses for ULM's Insurance Studies Program in the College of Business Administration. A grant in the amount of $50,000 will be presented to officials at ULM on Friday, Dec. 19th, at 10 a.m. in the media room on the 6th floor of the ULM Library. Everyone is invited.

The check will be presented to the Dean of the College of Business Administration, Kenneth Clow, and President of the University of Louisiana at Monroe, James Cofer, by Jean Baird, Vice President of Operations at State Farm.

This partnership is an effort to increase access to insurance education at the university level to individuals in northeast Louisiana as well as throughout the state. The flexibility of ULM's program will allow students, employees and employers (including agencies) to obtain college credit, meet pre-licensing and continuing education requirements, as well as for training and education on a wide range of insurance topics. The project will be lead by Dr. Christine Berry, Insurance Studies Professor at ULM.
