— The dean of the Wharton Business School has resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations, the school announced Monday.
In a statement, the Whampoa School said Dean of Students John L. Kowalski, who was the school’s president at the time of the allegations, “will step down effective immediately.”
Wharton has been the subject of a number of sexual harassment allegations in recent years, including allegations that a former associate dean at the school sexually harassed a male student.
The school says that Kowalki, a former Wharton professor who taught at the Whistler School of Business, will serve as a substitute professor at another Wharton school.
In an email Monday, the School said it is “deeply saddened and deeply sorry” to learn of the reports.
Kowalsky had been the Whamman School of Government’s dean since 2014.
He also served as an associate dean for higher education and served as a deputy director at the National Institutes of Health.
