A former president of Tulane has resigned amid a sexual misconduct scandal that has engulfed the university.
Tulane’s president, Eric Kaltenbach, said in a statement that he was resigning from his position effective immediately and that his resignation will not affect the university’s academic or academic governance.
Khaltenbach said the allegations are “deeply disturbing and are not indicative of our values and mission.”
A report released last week by a task force created by the university to investigate sexual assault allegations against Kaltenbacher accused him of repeatedly pursuing relationships with women and seeking to sexually assault them.
A university spokeswoman said Kaltenbeck has not been charged.
