SUNY Board waiting on Oswego regarding Charlie Rose’s honorary degree

News

The fate of Charlie Rose’s honorary degree from SUNY Oswego has yet to be decided.

Last week, Rose was fired by CBS News amid sexual misconduct allegations. 

SUNY Chancellor Kristina Johnson says there is a certain process that SUNY schools must abide by when it comes to revoking honorary degrees.

“As you know, we have a process for which we award honorary degrees and we went through that process to award the degree. And a similar process exists to revoking a degree,” she said. 

According to Johnson, SUNY Oswego first has to appeal for the honorary degree to be repealed and then the SUNY  board will make the final decision. 

Just last month, that same board revoked an honorary degree given to Harvey Weinstein by SUNY Buffalo.
