COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- The longtime dean of the University of Missouri Trulaske College of Business says he will step down at the end of the summer.
Bruce Walker announced Monday that he will return to full-time teaching in the college's marketing department.
Walker has been dean of the business college since 1990.
Under Walker's leadership, the university's business school has raised millions of dollars in private support and greatly improved its national rankings.
Walker was the recipient of the 2008 Pacheco Academic Leadership Award, which is presented to one administrator in the four Missourui campuses each year.
