Fred Pestello to step down from SLU

Saint Louis University president Fred Pestello announced March 21 that he will step down at the end of June 2025. The announcement took place on the 10th anniversary of his introduction as SLU’s 33rd president in 2014.

Pestello
“There is so much I will miss about this magnificent job,” Pestello wrote in an announcement to the SLU community. “But just as I knew 10 years ago that SLU would be my home, I know that it is time for a new leader to take the first step into a new era.”

Pestello’s time at SLU coincided with a particularly turbulent time for higher education in the United States, with colleges and universities across the country grappling with declining enrollments, increasing financial pressures, social upheaval and a global pandemic. Under his leadership, SLU navigated these and other challenges, breaking institutional records for enrollment, fundraising and research funding along the way. SLU will conduct a national search to identify Pestello’s successor. Following a sabbatical after he steps down, Pestello said he plans to continue teaching, writing and supporting the university and its new president as needed.
