Central State University Removes Bill Cosby's Name From Building

The HBCU renamed the building the CSU Communications Center.

Published September 12, 2015

The sexual assault scandal continues to actively affect Bill Cosby's brand.

Most recently, Central State University in southwest Ohio has announced that it has removed the former TV dad's name from one of its university buildings.


The historically Black college in Wilberforce says that the Camille O. & William H. Cosby Communications Center has been renamed the CSU Communications Center, The Columbus Dispatch reports. After temporarily covering Cosby's name on the structure since July, the school made it official just recently.

To date, the Cosby family has donated more than $2 million to the institution.

Central's decision comes after Cosby's brand has been tarnished by an onslaught of sexual assault allegations made by dozens of women. He admitted to obtaining quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women prior to sex.

University president Cynthia Jackson-Hammond called the circumstances surrounding Cosby "troublesome and disappointing to all."
