(CBS) — The former Wheaton College professor who was removed from her job as the school’s first black professor after comments she made supporting Muslims will have a scholarship created in her name, reports WBBM’s Mike Krauser.

Larycia Hawkins and Wheaton College President Phillip Ryken appeared together to discuss what the college called a “mutual place of resolution.”

The college is creating a scholarship for peace and conflict studies in her name as part of the confidential parting agreement.

Hawkins was placed on leave after writing that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. As they were discussing the agreement in Chicago, students gathered in Wheaton talking about a fast and calling on Wheaton College and other evangelical institutions to confess and repent the sins of racism, sexism and Islamophobia.
