The Dean of the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester is stepping down.

Douglas Lowry has resigned for health reasons. The Board of Trustees named him the Joan and Martin Messinger Dean Emeritus and awarded him an honorary Doctor of Music degree on Monday.

Jamal Rossi, executive associate dean, will serve as dean until the conclusion of a national search.

Lowry had been dean since 2007 and was the sixth dean of the Eastman School of Music.
