Summary: Two universities have rescinded Cosby’s honorary degrees amid the sexual assault allegations.

Bill Cosby may want to buy an island and move to it. The latest bad news to hit the actor accused of drugging and raping women was from two universities. Fordham University in New York and Marquette University in Wisconsin announced they were rescinding his honorary degrees in light of recent allegations.

Bill Cosby’s Lawyer Tried to Keep “Terribly Embarrassing” Court Documents Sealed

Fordham is a Jesuit university that will not “stand behind the degree” it gave Cosby fourteen years ago. The deposition that Cosby gave in 2005 for a civil lawsuit involving sexual assault was recently released to the public. In the deposition Cosby admits to obtaining drugs to give to women to have sex with them, but he does not admit to actually performing the act.

For Fordham, the admittance “that Mr. Cosby was willing to drug and rape women for his sexual gratification, and further damage those same women’s reputations and careers to obscure his guilt, hurt not only his victims, but all women, and is beyond the pale.”

Marquette University’s President Michael R. Lovell and Provost Daniel Myers released a similar announcement: “By his own admission, Mr. Cosby engaged in behaviors that go entirely against our university’s mission and the guiding values we have worked so hard to instill on our campus.” They awarded Cosby his degree in 2013. After meeting with campus leaders and faculty members, the president and provost made the decision to revoke it.
