Welcome to the Saint Louis University Presidential Search Page
Saint Louis University is beginning the search for its 32nd president following the Sept. 1 retirement of Lawrence Biondi, S.J.
The Saint Louis University Board of Trustees has approved the official search process, including the formation of a presidential search committee, which includes trustees, a Jesuit, the presidents of the Faculty Senate and Student Government Association, an academic dean and other members of the faculty.
The Board also has engaged the services of AGB Search, which will help guide the work of the search committee in identifying the best possible candidates for the position.
A key component of the search will be to gather input from the University community. Please visit this site often for more information and updates.
