Former SLU President Leaving St. Louis

St. Louis, MO  (KTRS)  The former president of St. Louis University is leaving the Gateway City.

University officials say Reverend Lawrence Biondi is returning to his hometown of Chicago.  It’s unclear what his role will be in the windy city. Biondi stepped down last year after serving as the leader of the Jesuit university for twenty-five years.

Biondi is president emeritus of Saint Louis University and still lives on campus.  He is credited with increasing enrollment and the physical expansion of the university. However, in the final years of his presidency, Biondi had strained relations with faculty who were upset over tenure issues and Biondi’s sometimes unyielding management style.
