(KTVI) – Saint Louis University Board of Trustees is searching for the next president of the University after Reverend Lawrence Biondi announced last week that he was leaving.

The trustees say Father Biondi was not forced to leave and didn’t know his intentions until a meeting on Saturday.

The University is looking to improve its communications and morale. The trustees say it’s more important the new president is dedicated to the University’s Jesuit mission than being Jesuit.
