UNC Revokes Bill Cosby's honorary degree

CHAPEL HILL, NC (WTVD) --

On Thursday, the Board of Trustees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill decided to revoke Bill Cosby's honorary degree. During a consent agenda, the trustees voted to strip Cosby of the honor. 

On May 2, UNC's chancellor recommended that the board initiate a process to revoke the degree awarded to Cosby in 2003.  

In April, the 80-year-old was convicted of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand. The crime happened at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004.  

According to Chancellor Carol Folt, this is the first known time that the university has taken steps to rescind an honorary degree.
