*Brown University is the latest school to rescind the honorary degree it granted Bill Cosby.
The Ivy League institution becomes the third university to take such action in less than a week, following Fordham and Marquette on Thursday.
Brown President Christina H. Paxson says the university’s board Friday revoked the doctorate of humane letters it granted Cosby in 1985. The comedian received the degree for integrating his personal character into his fictional one while embracing such values as “honesty, fair play, love of family, and respect for humanity.” She says Cosby admitted in legal depositions that he’d engaged in conduct with women “contrary to the values of Brown.”
Cosby has admitted having extramarital relationships with several women, including some who now accuse him of sexual assault. He’s has not been charged with a crime.
