    Police said investigation revealed Dr. Mark Tumeo, dean of the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction, met someone on an internet application named “Adam4Adam” and agreed to meet him on campus.

    When questioned, Tumeo told police he was just there to talk to the man about his bat business, according to the report.

    He told police the man may have been bending down to tie his shoe, and that may have looked out of place.

    After telling Tumeo that the man admitted to their sexual encounter, Tumeo told officers he was there to engage in oral sex, according to the report.

    The man was issued a trespass warning and Tumeo resigned, according to school officials.

    UNF sent the following statement to students, faculty and staff:

    "Dr. Mark Tumeo, dean of the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction, has resigned effective immediately. Tumeo engaged in behavior on campus Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 2, which was reported as a consensual sex act. It was unbecoming of a University official and doesn't comply with the standards expected of members of our University community. It's important to note that the conduct didn't directly involve students or other University employees.  Interim Provost Dr. Pam Chally has appointed Associate Dean Dr. Chip Klostermeyer to the position of interim CCEC Dean until a search for a new dean can be conducted."
