The University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) is a coeducational public university in Monroe, Louisiana, United States and part of the University of Louisiana System. ULM opened in 1931 as Ouachita Parish Junior College. Three years later it became the Northeast Center of Louisiana State University. In 1936 and 1937, its dean was Stephen A. Caldwell. Its name changed again in 1949, to Northeast Junior College of Louisiana State University. A year later, it offered its first four-year degrees as Northeast Louisiana State College. Its name remained unchanged for nearly two decades, but in 1969, when it began to grant its first doctoral degrees, it changed from Northeast Louisiana State College to Northeast Louisiana University (NLU).
