MONROE, La. (AP) — The University of Louisiana Monroe has a new person in place to guide the school temporarily until a permanent person is named president.

The Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System announced Tuesday that Edwin Litolff will be interim president while the university searches for a replacement for retiring President Nick Bruno whose last day in office is June 30.

Bruno began his tenure as president in 2010. He has been in higher education for 45 years.

Litolff currently serves as vice president and chief financial officer for the University of Louisiana System.

“Dr. Edwin Litolff is ideally suited for interim appointment, especially in the current environment,” UL System President and CEO Jim Henderson said. “I fully expect he will work capably with the ULM leadership team and faculty, providing stable stewardship and even moving the institution forward in anticipation of the next president.”

The presidential search committee voted last month to extend the search to allow for on-campus interviews. The search committee will meet May 18 to choose semifinalists for the position.

Interviews will take place the week of Aug. 17 and the next president will take office Oct. 1.
