ATLANTA (AP) — An Atlanta college is suspending its endowed professorship with Bill Cosby amid allegations by more than two dozen women that the comedian and actor sexually assaulted them.

Spelman College is the latest school to disassociate itself from Cosby.

Spelman says in a statement that the program was established in the name of Cosby and wife Camille to bring positive attention and scholars to the campus. It says the goal was “to enhance our intellectual, cultural and creative life.”

In the statement, the college says the current situation “prevents us from continuing to meet these objectives fully,” and the program will be suspended until the goals can again be met.

Cosby has denied the allegations, but he has been mostly silent about the accusations.
