Thank you, Father Biondi
Lawrence Biondi, S.J., retired as president of Saint Louis University on Sept. 1, 2013, after 26 years. He is the longest serving president in the University's nearly 200-year history. Now president emeritus, he is enjoying a yearlong sabbatical, during which he will continue his efforts to build national and international support for Saint Louis University.
Before coming to the University, Biondi had been a professor, a department chairman and a dean. But perhaps he will be best known as the visionary president and founder of the modern SLU. | Read more
