Fordham University has taken back an honorary degree it gave Bill Cosby in 2001.

The New York co-educational research university cites sexual assault allegations against Cosby – and the comedian’s admission that he obtained quaaludes – to give to women with whom he hoped to have sex.

The University Board of Trustees voted Thursday to rescind the degree – considering Cosby’s statements in a now-public court deposition – wherein Cosby admitted having extramarital relationships with several women – including some who now accuse him of sexual assault.

Fordham has never before rescinded an honorary degree.

It says as a Jesuit university, “Fordham could no longer stand behind the degree it had bestowed upon Mr. Cosby.”

Cosby has never been charged with a crime.
