Swarthmore College's board of managers has rescinded an honorary degree it awarded to embattled entertainer Bill Cosby in 1995.

Swarthmore is one of a growing number of colleges and universities that have opted to yank Cosby's degree following dozens of allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted women.

 Swarthmore's board voted to rescind the degree on Saturday and the college announced the decision to the campus community Monday. The recommendation came from both the college's honorary degree committee and the faculty of the college, and the board agreed.

 "Mr. Cosby has testified in a deposition under oath, which was made public in July, that he routinely and premeditatively drugged women before having sex with them," said Swarthmore College President Valerie Smith in a statement. "We find that his admitted personal behaviors are wholly inconsistent with our institutional values - and ones we would never want our own students or graduates to emulate."

 Other area colleges that have rescinded Cosby's degree include Muhlenberg, Lehigh, Franklin and Marshall, Wilkes and Drexel.
