University Of Missouri Revokes Bill Cosby’s Honorary Degree

Columbia, Missouri  (KTRS)  The University of Missouri’s Board of Curators has voted unanimously to revoke an honorary degree it granted to Bill Cosby.

University system President Mun Choi recommended this action, citing allegations from several women that Cosby sexually assaulted them. Choi says Cosby’s actions do not reflect the university’s values. At least 25 other colleges and universities across the country have withdrawn honorary degrees and honors from Cosby since the sexual assault accusations became public. This was the first time the university has ever revoked an honorary degree.

The University had given the doctorate in humane letters to Cosby in 1999. The Missouri Faculty Council recommended in November 2015 that curators revoke Cosby’s degree.
