Bill Cosby Might Have To Wave Bye-Bye To His Honorary Degree

The 2001 Spring Commencement speaker might not be able to hold onto that honorary degree much longer.

As someone who has been charged with aggravated incident assaults, it’s kind of baffling that Bill Cosby has been able to hold onto his honorary degree he received from the university in 2001. Don’t worry, though, the university Board of Trustees are looking into it.

On this Friday, the OSU Board of Trustees will meet and vote to decide on Cosby’s honorary degree’s fate, according to a report from Columbus Business First.

Since speaking at the Spring Commencement in 2001, Cosby has had his name in the news for some pretty malicious reasons like numerous sexual misconduct accusations as well as actual criminal sexual imposition charges. These bits of news swirling around his name has been pretty detrimental to the once loved TV comedian as many colleges like New York University, Drexel University, and the University of Pittsburgh. This Friday will determine if Ohio State will join the long list of colleges who have broken ties with Cosby.

If the Board of Trustees decides to revoke the 80-year-old actor’s degree, it would be the first rescinded by the university.
