This was sent to the Faculty Senators:

Dear Faculty Senators,

President-elect Fred Pestello has reiterated to the Faculty Senate Executive Committee the past statements of Interim President Kauffman and Board of Trustees Chairman Adorjan that a continuing role in the affairs of Saint Louis University, if any, for President Emeritus Biondi is a matter to be decided by incoming President Pestello after he arrives on campus. The Faculty Senate Executive Committee has shared ...the views of faculty on this matter with incoming President Pestello. We have full confidence that Dr. Pestello will carefully consider those views, consult further with the Senate, and take such action as he deems necessary in the best interests of Saint Louis University. We further believe that, to make an informed and prudent judgment on this delicate matter, Dr. Pestello must be given the benefit of a respectful exchange of views in an environment of collegiality and presumptive trust.

This resolution passed in the Arts and Sciences Faculty Council today unanimously.

"Because it is vital that SLU's newly appointed university president establish himself and chart the direction of his administration independent of the influence of his predecessor, and because the university is striving to adopt best practices moving forward, it is the sense of the Faculty Council of the College of Arts and Sciences that it would be a serious mistake for Fr. Lawrence Biondi, S.J., to be appointed Director of Museums and Galleries, or hold any other position at Saint Louis University."
