Dinesh D'Souza has resigned as the president of The King's College (TKC), the Manhattan school's board of trustees announced Thursday.
The decision comes after World magazine reported Tuesday that D'Souza was engaged to Denise Odie Joseph II while still legally married to his wife of 20 years, Dixie, and that the couple had allegedly checked into a hotel room together during a Christian conference last month.
"The Board of Trustees of The King's College in New York City has accepted the resignation of its president, Dinesh D'Souza, effective immediately," the board's statement said. Board chairman Andy Mills will be appointed as interim president.
"We have thoroughly considered all of the facts as we know them, and after careful consultation with our board and with Dinesh, have concluded it to be in the best interest of the college to accept this resignation," Mills said.
In an initial press release, the board's statement said D'Souza "admitted difficulties in his marriage." It also quoted him saying his actions "have not been consistent with the standard of leadership required for the position of president at The King's College, and have created a distraction that would make it difficult, if not impossible, to continue in my role without adversely affecting the students and school I have grown to love." (A subsequent press release omitted the quotes from D'Souza and added that it accepted D'Souza's resignation "to allow him to attend to his personal and family needs. We thank him for his service and significant contribution to the College over the last two years.")
