Tufts University rescinds Armstrong’s honorary degree

Tufts University (Massachusetts) has become the latest institution to cut ties with disgraced cycling champion Lance Armstrong. The university’s Board of Trustees unanimously voted to rescind the honorary degree it conferred upon Armstrong in 2006, a university spokeswoman said Wednesday, according to Boston Globe. “While continuing to respect the significant work of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the board concluded that, in the wake of the recent report of the United States Anti-Doping Agency and its acceptance by the International Cycling Union, Mr. Armstrong’s actions as an athlete are inconsistent with the values of the university,” said Kimberly Thurler, director of public relations at Tufts.
