Bill Cosby Spelman College

Suspends Cosby endowed professorship

15 Dec, 2014

Spelman College indefinitely suspends the William and Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby Endowed Professorship, a visiting scholar endowment created in 1988 following a 20 million donation from Cosby and wife Camille.

The William and Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby Endowed Professorship was established to bring positive attention and accomplished visiting scholars to Spelman College in order to enhance our intellectual, cultural and creative life. The current context prevents us from continuing to meet these objectives fully. Consequently, we will suspend the program until such time that the original goals can again be met.
