Pezzuto resigning from College of Pharmacy


The founding dean of the University of Hawaii at Hilo’s College of Pharmacy has announced he is resigning.

In an email sent this week to friends and colleagues at UH-Hilo, John Pezzuto confirmed he is leaving his post at the end of the year. He has served as the college’s only dean since 2006.

“It has been a privilege helping you build this college over the past several years,” Pezzuto wrote. “I am proud of our progress, and I am confident the future is bright. I will be here through the end of the year. You can be sure I will continue working to the utmost of my ability to continue building the college, and I will certainly do everything I can to assure a smooth transition.”

Pezzuto said a nationwide search would be launched “soon” to recruit his replacement.
