Revoke Bill Cosby's honorary degree from RPI

This petition made change with 191 supporters!


Bill Cosby received an honorary degree from RPI in 2001. Since then, Mr Cosby has been accused of drugging and raping over 30 women and, as of April 2018, found guilty to sexual assault and sentenced to over 10 years in prison.

RPI has a very bad history of ignoring sexual assult cases (see the recent poly article https://poly.rpi.edu/2018/04/25/title-ix-issues-should-be-on-prospectives-radar/) and allowing Mr. Cosby to continue to hold this honorary degree is a disgrace to our university.

We demand that Dr. Jackson immediately revoke Mr. Cosby's honorary degree and denounce him to the fullest extent.
