Oregon State University’s Board of Trustees on Tuesday unanimously accepted President F. King Alexander’s offer to resign amid a cascade of outrage stemming from his role in Louisiana State University’s sexual misconduct scandal.

Alexander’s resignation is effective April 1, but he will be on administrative leave until then. His resignation comes with a settlement agreement that will pay him an additional year’s salary, around $600,000. The money will come from OSU’s foundation, as opposed to its general fund.

Alexander was president of LSU from 2013 to 2019 during a time when the school systemically mishandled reports of sexual misconduct by students and by head football coach Les Miles, according to a report by law firm Husch Blackwell that was publicly released this month by LSU.
