On Tuesday, the faculty at Lehigh University has overwhelming voted to rescind Trump’s honorary degree. Trump was granted the degree in 1988.
According to online voting, 83 percent were in favor of revoking the degree, with a 296-50 vote. There was more than 75 percent of faculty who participated in the voting.
Faculty members have even tried presenting a petition twice. However, no action was taken by the Board of Trustees.
Faculties have argued that Trump’s behavior is not in line with the standards of the Lehigh community.
The school senate has also supported the faculty vote that echoed the support to revoke Trump’s degree.
