St. Louis (KSDK) - Students and faculty met Monday night to discuss the next step in their effort to oust Saint Louis University President Fr. Lawrence Biondi.

Both the Faculty Senate and the Student Government Association have already given him a "no confidence" vote.

Fr. Biondi has been criticized for tenure and personnel issues and not communicating with students.

"When they go and say they are a graduate of SLU. They want to be a graduate of a university that's a prominent university with great leadership, and I believe that the faculty vote was saying this will not happen if President Biondi stays on at the university," said Faculty Senate President Mark Knuepfer.

"We just need to trust the process at this point. We gotta meet with the board of trustees and follow up with them on this. This going to be a long process but students and faculty are committed to the decision that was made," said SGA President Blake Exline.

Supporters say Fr. Biondi has expanded enrollment and the campus itself.

The only vote that really matters comes from the board of trustees that meets on December 15.
