MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The student newspaper at Marquette is calling on the school's president to say more about why he's leaving.
Father Scott Pilarz is resigning at the end of the fall semester after two-and-a-half years in office. The Milwaukee Jesuit school issued a statement last Friday announcing the move.
Tuesday, the Marquette Tribune editorialized that it's not like Pilarz to say nothing directly to the student body.
The paper's online editorial noted that Pilarz has issued almost 40 personal messages to students -- everything from Marquette's move to the new Big East Conference, to his annual "poetry month" e-mails.
In the school's statement, Pilarz is quoted as saying that after 10 years as a university president, it's time to consider, "other apostolic opportunities for me as a Jesuit priest."
