Bill Cosby Steps Down from Board of Trustees at Temple University

December 1, 2014


Bill Cosby announced Monday he has stepped down from the board of trustees at his beloved Temple University.

“I have always been proud of my association with Temple University,” Cosby said in a statement released through the Philadelphia school.

“I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students,” he said. “As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees.”

Cosby had been a board member for 32 years.

Temple released its own response in the same statement.

“The Board of Trustees accepts Dr. Cosby’s resignation from the board and thanks him for his service to the university,” the statement said.

Temple is the latest – and undoubtedly one of the most personally devastating – blows for Cosby, 77, in the wake of renewed publicity about drugging and sexual assault allegations against him. CLICK FOR MORE
