Bill Cosby And His Wife Camille Cosby
The historically black women’s college in Atlanta said that it would end the endowed professorship funded by the comedian and his wife, Camille Cosby.
The professorship had been suspended since December.
Though Cosby maintains that the drug use and sex were consensual, nearly two dozen women have now accused the actor of rape and sexual assault.

The college also announced that they returned “related funds” to the Clara Elizabeth Jackson Carter Foundation, an organization established by Camille Cosby.
The BBC estimates that the “related funds” are worth $20 million, a huge sum for a small liberal arts school.
Cosby was a big supporter of the all women's college over the years and the school acknowledged his contribution by honoring him at various times.
It's the latest in an avalanche of back turns in the wake of the various sexual assault allegations.
