Pett resigns from Wichita State University

WICHITA – Wichita State University's director of the Center for Entrepreneurship has resigned.

Tim Pett, who was placed on administrative leave this spring, is already gone from the school, but the resignation is effective on Aug. 31.

"He is resigning, and we appreciate his service to the university," says Cindy Claycomb, interim dean of the Barton School of Business.

Pett also has been a professor and the W. Frank Barton Distinguished Chair.

Neither Pett nor the university has commented on the reasons for his administrative leave. Pett hasn’t returned calls for comment since May.

Lou Heldman, who is the former interim director of WSU’s Elliott School of Communication, is the current acting director for the Center for Entrepreneurship.
