Howard University Revokes Honorary Degree from Diddy

The Howard University Board of Trustees has announced the revocation of the honorary degree conferred upon Sean Combs in 2014. This decision was made unanimously by the Board and reflects the University’s commitment to upholding its core values and principles.

The Board’s statement outlined that the acceptance of Mr. Combs’ return of his honorary degree also revokes all associated honors and privileges. Consequently, his name will be removed from all official University documents listing honorary degree recipients.

The revocation stems from Mr. Combs’ conduct as seen in a recently released video, which the Board described as “fundamentally incompatible with Howard University’s core values and beliefs.” The University emphasized its unwavering opposition to all forms of interpersonal violence, which was a key factor in their decision.

Further actions directed by the Board include the termination of a 2016 gift agreement with Mr. Combs, the disbandment of a scholarship program in his name, the return of his $1 million contribution, and the termination of a 2023 pledge agreement with the Sean Combs Foundation. It was clarified that no payments have been made toward the $1 million pledge, thus no funds are due for return under the 2023 pledge agreement.

“The Board and University administration have no further comment on this matter,” concluded the statement.

Howard University, through its Board of Trustees, maintains governance and control over the University’s affairs, property, and interests, exercising all powers conferred upon the institution as set forth in the Act of Incorporation and other legal provisions.
