Middlebury College Considering Revoking Rudy Giuliani’s 2005 Honorary Degree, Citing Violent Jan. 6 Uprising

Middlebury College is considering revoking Rudy Giuliani’s 2005 honorary degree, with President Laurie Patton citing that the former New York City mayor who serves as President Trump’s attorney had played a role in “fomenting the violent uprising against our nation’s Capitol building on January 6, 2021—an insurrection against democracy itself,” Patton wrote on the school’s Facebook page.

The school has begun the process to consider the revoking, Patton wrote.

Last week, Lehigh University revoked and rescinded President Trump’s honorary degree.
