Wheaton College and political science professor Larycia Hawkins are parting ways under a mutual agreement announced Saturday.
Last month, the evangelical Christian college started the firing process against Hawkins. She was put on administrative leave in December after stating in a Facebook post that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
Hawkins and Wheaton College officials plan to hold a joint press conference Wednesday morning to discuss their resolution.
"Wheaton College sincerely appreciates Dr. Hawkins' contributions to this institution over the last nine years," Wheaton College President Dr. Philip Graham Ryken said in a statement Saturday. "We are grateful for her passionate teaching, scholarship, community service and mentorship of our students."
Hawkins added: "I appreciate and have great respect for the Christian liberal arts and the ways that Wheaton College exudes that in its mission, programs, and in the caliber of its employees and students."
On December 10, Hawkins posted a Facebook comment saying she would wear a Hijab during Advent in solidarity with Muslims.
"I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book," she wrote. "And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God."
Hawkins was placed on administrative leave December 15 as a result of "theological statements that seem inconsistent with Wheaton College's doctrinal convictions," the college said in a statement. In announcing its initial recommendation last month to dismiss Hawkins, the college said both parties had reached an impasse over discussions "about the theological implications of her public statements."
