DATE
: August 16, 2013I write today to let you know of changes in the leadership of the University that will take place duringthe next two weeks, and of the decisions made by the Board of Trustees to ensure the ongoing effectiveoperations of the institution.During the past
several weeks, Father Biondi and I have had several discussions regarding Father’s
desire to retire from day-to-day leadership of SLU and to transition to interim leadership as we begin thesearch for the next president of SLU. Father Biondi has shared with me his desire for the smoothest possible transition for Saint Louis University.I have the greatest respect and admiration for Father Biondi and for all that he has done for SLU, and Iam hopeful that, as we soon begin the search for his successor, he can continue to provide his knowledgeand insight to the Board. We all owe a great debt of gratitude to Father for giving so much of himself tomake SLU the outstanding and respected institution it is. He has always kept the best interests of theUniversity as his top priority in all decisions he has made, including this one. I know you join me inthanking him for leading SLU to be one of the finest universities in the country.Earlier today I convened a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Board to discuss the issues
related to the leadership of the University and Father Biondi’s desire to
retire from the day-to-dayresponsibilities of being president. In that meeting, the members of the Executive Committee approvedan interim succession plan that will ensure the successful ongoing operations of the University.After discussion with and approval of the Executive Committee of the Board today, the followingactions will take place:1.
 
Father Biondi will retire as president of SLU effective September 1, 2013. He will be namedPresident Emeritus and will take a much-deserved one-year sabbatical effective on that date.During his sabbatical, he will continue his activities in building national and internationalsupport for Saint Louis University, but will have no day-to-day responsibilities for leadership of
