The University System of Maryland Board of Regents voted Friday to rescind three honorary degrees previously awarded to Bill Cosby.

University of Maryland Eastern Shore, University of Baltimore and University of Maryland, College Park all recommended Cosby’s honorary degrees be revoked following the comedian’s sexual assault retrial. Cosby was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault on April 26.

As Maryland’s public university system, we are collectively and individually committed to reducing the incidence of sexual misconduct and to responding when it occurs,” said Robert Caret, university system of Maryland chancellor, in a news release.

“The universities’ requests, and the board’s decision, to rescind honorary degrees awarded to an individual later convicted of sexual assault reaffirms our values and sends a signal to all students, faculty and staff across our institutions and to the people of Maryland. Sexual misconduct will not be tolerated, much less honored,” he continued.

The board had received requests to rescind degrees from the three awarding institutions. No other University System of Maryland institution has awarded a degree to Cosby, according to a news release.
