2023 President's Report: Making an Impact

February 27, 2024

Dear SLU faculty, staff, and students:

I am pleased to share with you the latest President’s Report, which highlights the impressive impact of the SLU community in 2023.

The numbers in the report offer a snapshot of SLU's remarkable accomplishments – our largest endowment, record enrollment, and robust research funding.

But you know as well as I do: To truly understand the impact of the SLU community, you need to meet our incredible faculty, staff, students and alumni.

In this report, we’ve profiled 10 of them. Together, they represent just some of the countless ways that SLU is advancing knowledge and transforming lives.

I have the gift of hearing the stories of the SLU community every day. I can attest that each person who joins the SLU community – all of our more than 15,000 students, 4,000 employees and 137,000 alumni – brings their distinctive experiences, aspirations and drive to make a positive difference.

The profiles in this report tell a story that you are contributing to each and every day.

Your impact is extraordinary.

Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D.
Saint Louis University President
