William F. Slocum was forced to retire in 1917 after an investigation found he sexually harassed and assaulted students, staff and faculty.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports the board recently voted to not only take away his degree, but they also removed his name from a dorm.

Slocum died in 1934.

    If he died in 1934 and it’s now 2018, does his degree really matter at this point?

    Seriously, do something productive with your time, people.
