CSU Removes Cosby's Name From Communications Building

WILBERFORCE, Ohio (AP) — Central State University officials have decided to permanently remove the name of comedian Bill Cosby from its communications building.

 

In a statement, officials at the historically black college say the Camille O. & William H. Cosby Communications Center has been renamed the CSU Communications Center. The school had been temporarily covering Cosby's name since July while it made a final decision.

The Cosby family has donated more than $2 million to the university.

Cosby has been the target of sexual assault allegations by dozens of women. He has acknowledged that he obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women before sex.

 

Central State President Cynthia Jackson-Hammond had called circumstances surrounding the comedian's situation "troublesome and disappointing to all."
