Bill Cosby has resigned from his position on the board of trustees of his alma mater Temple University, Monday, amidst the rape allegations currently stacked against him. Cosby’s move comes days before the board was scheduled to meet in his regard.
“I have always been proud of my association with Temple University. I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interest of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees,” Cosby said in a statement.
“The Board of Trustees accepts Dr. Cosby’s resignation from the board and thanks him for his service to the university,” the university responded.
Cosby recently resigned from his position as the co-chair of UMass Amherst’s capital campaign at The University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
Cosby’s lawyer continues to deny the accusations against Cosby. While celebs like Jill Scott openly defend Cosby.
