Sharing or Plagiarizing?





President of Saint Louis U. used material for his opening homily from one last year by president of U. of San Francisco.

Some students at St. Louis University want to know if the school policy on plagiarism applies to homilies given by the president, the Rev. Lawrence H. Biondi.

The student newspaper and The St. Louis Post-Dispatch have reported that Father Biondi took substantial portions of his homily last month to open the academic year from the homily given by the Rev. Stephen A. Privett, president of the University of San Francisco, to open the 2004-5 academic year at his institution. Saint Louis University and the University of San Francisco are both Jesuit institutions, which typically hold a special Mass of the Holy Spirit to mark the beginning of an academic year.
