Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza has stepped down as president of The King's College, amid questions over a relationship he has had with a woman who is not his wife.
The evangelical Christian school posted the news on its website Thursday.
"After careful consultation with the Board and with Dinesh, we have accepted his resignation to allow him to attend to his personal and family needs," Board of Trustees President Andy Mills said in a statement.
"We thank him for his service and significant contribution to the College over the last two years," he said.
The board first appointed D'Souza as the college president in 2010. D'Souza said he's resigning to allow the school to "move on" after questions concerning his relationship with the woman.
World Magazine reported he was engaged to the woman but is not yet divorced from his wife. He reportedly stayed with her in a hotel room and introduced her as his fiance at a Christian conference in South Carolina last month.
D'Souza has maintained that nothing inappropriate happened and that he is not having an affair.
Mills will assume the position of interim president. He encouraged The King's College community to pray for D'Souza and his family.
