The Philadelphia Inquirer reports H. Elizabeth Braun announced her resignation Wednesday in a campus-wide email, saying she plans to launch her own higher education consulting firm.
The email made no mention of recent protests by Organizing For Survivors, a campus-based group that advocates for the victims of sexual assault.
Students from the group staged a sit-in in Braun's office earlier this month over what they called the mishandling of sexual-assault investigations.
The group called for Braun to resign and for a review of the college's investigation procedures. They also say on-campus fraternity houses should be banned.
Their nine-day protest ended after the group had a formal meeting with Swarthmore's president, Valerie Smith.
