University of Cincinnati law, medicine, engineering deans step down

He said Friday he would step down from that role on October first. College of Medicine Dean William Martin announced is immediate resignation on Thursday. They follow College of Engineering Dean Stephen Kowel, who gave up his post in June after five years. Interim leaders have been named for the engineering and medical programs.
