The University of Buffalo is the latest academic domino to fall in the ongoing saga of Harvey Weinstein.

“Film executive Harvey Weinstein’s alma mater moved to rescind the honorary degree it gave him after a wave of Hollywood actresses came forward to accuse the producer of sexual harassment and other women alleged that he forced himself on them,” Dan Corey reported for NBC News. “Officials at the University at Buffalo, which is part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system, asked the SUNY board revoke the honorary doctorate of humane letters, which the school bestowed on Weinstein in 2000.”

“Weinstein attended the university from 1969 to 1973.”
