CSU Trustees Revoke Honorary Doctorate Awarded to Actor Bill Cosby

The Board of Trustees of the California State University (CSU) voted on November 18 to revoke the honorary Doctor of Letters degree awarded to actor Bill Cosby in 1992 on behalf of California Polytechnic University, Pomona. Cosby’s conduct is contrary to the values of the CSU and inconsistent with the criteria and high standards that honorary degree recipients are expected to exemplify.  See full press release: bit.ly/CSU-CosbyHonDrRevoked
