Bruno acceded to the presidency of ULM after serving for 5 years as Vice President for Business and Finance in the University of Louisiana System office in Baton Rouge. He had previously served at ULM from 2002 to 2005 as Associate Vice President for Business Affairs and then Vice President for Business Affairs. From 1978 to 2002 he was adjunct instructor of management at Southeastern Louisiana University while also serving in a variety of administrative roles including director of auxiliary services and assistant vice president for special initiatives.[8] Bruno received his Ph.D. (1994) in administration of higher education and his MBA degree (1980) and baccalaureate degree (1972) in accounting from Southeastern.[9] Bruno is a 1968 graduate of Independence High School in his hometown of Independence, Louisiana.[10] In a 2013 article Bruno commented on various attributes of his background including his upbringing as an Italian American, relatives, and positive associations with the Robinson Family and others in the Monroe area.[11]

Challenges

Sue Nicholson, a leader of the Monroe Chamber of Commerce who had worked with Nick Bruno during his previous administrative role at ULM, had this to say:

He's very much a people person. . . . In his division (business affairs) there was a lot of camaraderie. He had this sense of purpose in his team. He takes great pride in getting things done.[12]

Bruno cited looming state budget cuts among the challenges facing ULM.[13] Bruno seeks "to involve as many parties as possible in decisions that impact the future of the campus and the community."[14]

Bruno had the support of Monroe's city administration and local and state officials who cited financial concerns in urging his appointment[15] as competition for the position was intense.[16] Monroe's NBC affiliate KTVE Channel 10 televised interviews with students after Bruno's appointment.[17]
