Bucknell University is considering “rescinding” the honorary degree of former CBS chairman and Bucknell alumnus Les Moonves after sexual misconduct allegations against him surfaced. “The actions described in new reports concerning Les Moonves are unconscionable,” the university said in a statement Monday, after the TV bigwig announced his departure from the network on Sunday. “They stand in direct conflict with the values that form the foundation of what it means to be a Bucknellian.” WNEP reports that the university also wiped any mention of him from its website and removed his name from a “prominent room” on campus in July when sexual misconduct allegations against him were first made public. Moonves delivered the university’s commencement speech in 2016. The University of Southern California also suspended the use of Moonves’ name on its campus facilities while investigations were ongoing in early August.
