Public Shame: More Universities Strip Bill Cosby of Honorary Degrees

Written by on September 29, 2015


Last week Fordham University and Marquette University both stripped embattled comedian Bill Cosby of honorary PhDs.

And now Brown University also pulled their honorary degree from the beleaguered star.

As seen in the email posted below, the staff and student body Brown President Christina Paxson explained their decision,

“It has become clear, by his own admission in legal depositions that became public this summer, that Mr. Cosby has engaged in conduct with women that is contrary to the values of Brown and the qualities for which he was honored by the University in 1985.”
