Oregon State University President F. King Alexander offered to resign from his position effective April 1 after a cascade of outrage from his role in Louisiana State University’s sexual misconduct scandal.

The OSU Board of Trustees announced Alexander’s offer during a specially called meeting on Wednesday before going into executive session to discuss whether to accept it.

“We know that rebuilding trust is no longer possible,” OSU board chair Rani Borkar said before the executive session.

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.
