Early this morning, it was announced via broadcast e-mail that Msgr. Robert Sheeran will be stepping down from his position as University President at the end of the upcoming academic year.
The e-mail was a direct letter from Sheeran to the Seton Hall community, citing the decision as "spiritual and deeply personal," emphasizing his personal focus on "discerning God's will" and the priesthood.
Sheeran and Kurt Borowsky, the chairman of the Board of Trustees and Regents, also spoke with the media on a conference call this morning. The Setonian participated in this conference call and will provide details in a story later this afternoon.
