Temple University recently released a statement confirming that Bill Cosby has decided to resign from the institution’s board of trustees. Cosby, who attended the Philadelphia-based college decades ago, has served on their board since the 1980s. He publicly shared that he would be resigning, claiming that he wants to do what is in the best interest of the students.
“I have always been proud of my association with Temple University,” Cosby said in the statement. “I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees.”
Other universities have severed their ties with Cosby following the sexual assault allegations against him including the University of Massachusetts Amherst where he received his graduate degrees in education.
