He Was a Doer

It was with sadness Sunday when we read in the Post-Dispatch that the Rev. Lawrence Biondi planned to retire as president of St. Louis University after more than 25 years in the lead chair. If you have been following the St. Louis U. story for some time, it is obvious that he was forced to retire by a rebellious faculty and students who joined in the ouster movement, undoubtedly influenced by some of their instructors.

We have yet to meet a college or university president who had the undying love of the faculty, students and alums. We don’t know Father Biondi, but it is indeed unfortunate that he is being forced to leave under stormy circumstances since he was a leader of many accomplishments. Our views are from afar. But our campus observations are from near. With a wife, son and daughter-in-law who hold degrees from St. Louis U., we have nothing but respect for the institution. In fact, we know many graduates of SLU and the university can be proud of them.
