Another college dumps Cosby’s name.

WILBERFORCE, Ohio (AP) — A historically black college in southwest Ohio says it is permanently removing the name of comedian Bill Cosby from its communications building. As his rape scandal continues to haunt him, it should not come as a shock that Bill Cosby has seen some of his past honorifics and career offers being revoked.Bill Cosby may be a ubiquitous presence in the headlines these days, but here’s one place you won’t be seeing his name anymore: the communications building at Central State University.The decision was made by the university’s board of trustees, announcing it publicly for the first time on Friday, said university spokesperson Edwina Blackwell-Clark.

The historically black university in Wilberforce, Ohio, has renamed its communications center as allegations against the scandal-plagued comedian continue to mount. The university does not know when the signage for the Cosby Mass Communications Center will be permanently changed, though the new name will be CSU Mass Communications Center. The school released a statement saying they have reached a final decision, having covered Cosby’s name for the past few months as they decided what to do with the Camille O. & William H.

The Associated Press reported that the Cosby family has donated $2 Million to the university in the past, but the building shall be renamed as the CSU Mass Communication Center. Cosby’s rape allegations have seen a significant resurgence recently as more women have spoken publicly against him, and after admitting he procured quaalludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with. Since late last year, Cosby has been hit with a barrage of accusations leveled by women who claim that the former “Cosby Show” star had raped or sexually assaulted them.

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