UConn to Revoke Bill Cosby’s Honorary Degree


A university votes on whether to revoke an honorary degree awarded to Bill Cosby.

University of Connecticut trustees are meeting today and one item on the agenda is whether to revoke the Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts given to Cosby in 1996.

The university provost said Cosby has admitted in sworn depositions to conduct that is incongruent with the university’s values.

Bill Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by dozens of women. He has denied all the accusations.
The university said it would be the first time it has revoked an honorary degree.
