The president of Saint Louis University, Rev. Lawrence Biondi, sent a conciliatory letter Wednesday to faculty members and students, many of whom have been calling for his ouster, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Father Biondi pledged to be more collaborative, to work to improve the faculty role in governance, and to increase faculty and staff salaries. Faculty leaders say they want to see evidence that he will carry out the pledges. “I think people don’t have enough information to know if this is sincere or not,” said Ellen Carnaghan, chair of political science. “At this point, words are not enough.”
