The University of Wyoming Engineering Hall is shown in February 2015 in Laramie. The school's dean is stepping down at the end of the month.

Michael Pishko, the dean of the University of Wyoming’s College of Engineering and Applied Science, is stepping down and will join the ranks of faculty, he confirmed to the Star-Tribune on Tuesday afternoon.

“I’m stepping down for health related reasons,” he wrote in an email. “I’ve been running hard for the last 4.5 years and it’s taken it’s (sic) toll.”

Pishko emailed staff earlier Tuesday to inform them he was resigning at the end of this month. In that note, he wrote that “it’s been a privilege and an honor to serve as your Dean and I look forward to continue working with you as a member of the faculty.”
