“Given Mr. Moonves’ visibility as a prominent alumnus, I felt the need to let you know that we are aware of these reports,” school president John Bravman wrote Friday in a statement issued to students, faculty and staff prior to the publication of Ronan Farrow’s exposé in The New Yorker. “Sexual misconduct is unacceptable — on campus or beyond, and Bucknell will not stand for such behavior.”
Farrow’s story includes testimonies from six different women accusing Moonves of sexual misconduct.
Moonves graduated from Bucknell in 1971 and was previously listed as a donor on the university’s website.
The Associated Press on Monday reported that the school has removed numerous references to Moonves from its website, including articles on his commencement address. Indeed, links to such articles were not working as of Monday afternoon.
