Howard’s Board of Trustees unanimously voted to take back Combs’ degree, which he was given by the Washington, DC-based historically black university in 2014, and cut ties with the rapper, the school said.

The board additionally agreed to return Combs’ $1 million donation, disband the scholarship program in his name and terminate all gift agreements with Combs and the Sean Combs Foundation.
