PAINE College interim president says the university could become the next school to rescind an honorary degree awarded to Bill Cosby.
Interim President Samuel Sullivan said the school’s board of trustees would vote on rescinding Cosby’s 2003 honorary doctorate during a meeting this week.
Sullivan says numerous sexual assault allegations against the comedian have led the school’s leadership to consider revoking his degree.
Baltimore’s Goucher College and Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, both announced last week that they had rescinded honorary degrees given to Cosby.
Court documents unsealed in July show the 78-year-old Cosby admitting extramarital relationships with several women, some of whom accuse him of sexual assault.
