*Three more colleges have rescinded honorary degrees given to Bill Cosby.

Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, says it withdrew an honorary doctorate of arts it conferred on Cosby in 2000, along with an award given in 2011 for excellence in children’s media.

Baltimore’s Goucher College, meanwhile, says it decided to revoke an honorary degree it gave to Cosby when he was commencement speaker in 2001.

Thursday’s revocations came a day after Pennsylvania’s Lehigh University rescinded an honorary degree given in 2005.

Court documents unsealed in July show the 78-year-old Cosby admitting extramarital relationships with several women, some of whom accuse him of drugging and sexual assault. He has never been charged with a crime.

Tufts says Cosby has shown “a lack of character and integrity” that does not represent the school’s values.
