WILBERFORCE, Ohio (AP) - An historically black college in southwest Ohio says it’s considering changing the title of a building named for comedian Bill Cosby.

Officials at Central State University in Wilberforce earlier said the name of its Cosby Communications Center would remain intact, but President Cynthia Jackson-Hammond said in a statement Wednesday the name will be “discussed appropriately.”

In newly unsealed documents, Cosby testified in 2005 that he obtained quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women before sex.

Jackson-Hammond calls the circumstances around the comedian’s situation “troublesome and disappointing to all.”

The Dayton Daily News (https://bit.ly/1Hl3nnn ) reports the Cosby family has donated more than $2 million to the university. A decision on the building’s name is expected from the school soon.
