LANCASTER, Pa. — A Pennsylvania college has become the latest school to rescind an honorary degree awarded to Bill Cosby.
The board at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster voted last week to revoke the honor given 15 years ago when he was the commencement speaker.
A spokeswoman says the school is also looking into returning the $100,000 Cosby gave to create a scholarship that has funded several students’ graduate work.
Court documents unsealed in July show the 78-year-old Cosby admitted extramarital relationships with several women, some of whom accuse him of sexual assault.
Cosby has never been charged with a crime.
Franklin & Marshall says the conduct is “egregiously in contrast to the college and our educational mission.”
Several other schools, including Fordham, Tufts, Baylor and Lehigh, have already pulled their Cosby degrees.
