Baylor Rescinds Bill Cosby’s Honorary Doctorate
Baylor University has rescinded an award given to Bill Cosby back in 2003.
In 2003, Cosby was awarded an honorary doctorate by the school. But the Waco Tribune-Herald reports the Baylor Board of Regents voted to rescind the honor.
Baylor spokeswoman Lori Fogleman cited "acts of interpersonal and sexual violence" contradict the school's values and were cause for rescinding Cosby's honorary doctorate.
A popular move of late, Baylor's decision to rescind Cosby’s honorary doctorate Thursday came just a few days after Pennsylvania’s Wilkes University stripped Cosby of an honorary degree they granted him in 2004.
Cosby has been tied to numerous alleged sexual assault cases with several different women.
At this time however, Cosby has not been charged with a crime.
