Mark Tumeo, the dean of the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction, resigned, according to a Special Edition Osprey Update email sent out on Wednesday.

“[The act] was unbecoming of a University official and doesn’t comply with the standards expected of members of our University community,” the update said. “It’s important to note that the conduct didn’t directly involve students or other University employees.”

The resignation is effective immediately, the email said.

Interim Provost Pam Chally has appointed Associate Dean William “Chip” Klostermeyer to resume Tumeo’s responsibilities in the interim, according to the update. The University will be conducting a search for a new dean soon.
