Spelman Suspends Cosby Chair in Wake of Growing Sexual Assault Claims

The Cosby Chair for the Humanities, a prestigious endowed professorship at Spelman College, funded in part by a $20 million gift that Bill and Camille Cosby gave to the school in the 1980s, has been suspended indefinitely while the comedian and actor deals with almost daily allegations of sexual assaults.

The all-female school confirmed the decision late Sunday after sources tipped off The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
