Rescind Bill Cosby's honorary doctorate from Fordham University
This petition made change with 1,014 supporters!
On Saturday, May 19, 2001, Bill Cosby received an honorary doctorate of fine arts at Fordham University's 156th Commencement Ceremony. Since that time, Cosby has been accused of drug facilitated sexual assault by over 40 women.
We, the undersigned, students, faculty, alumni, and friends of Fordham University demand that this honor be rescinded as Mr. Cosby's association with our beloved institution dilutes not only the positive image of the University, but the hard work and continued good work of its graduates. Fordham University maintains a zero tolerance policy for sexual assault and that policy should extend to those it has welcomed into our community with an honorary doctorate.
