Temple University issued a statement today confirming that Bill Cosby has resigned from its board of trustees. Cosby is a Temple alum and had been an active supporter of his alma mater where he has been a board member since the 1980s. Several colleges and universities have now cut ties with Cosby, but among them Temple University may be the one with which he is most closely associated.
Up to 20 women have stepped forward in recent weeks alleging that since at least 1965, Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted them. One of those women is Andrea Constand, former director of operations for Temple’s women’s basketball team, with whom Cosby settled a civil suit in November 2006.
