The head of the Temple University faculty union said that board of trustees chairman Patrick O'Connor's representation of comedian Bill Cosby in a sexual-assault lawsuit posed a conflict of interest and that O'Connor should "seriously consider" stepping down. Art Hochner, president of the Temple Association of University Professionals, said Monday that O'Connor should have either stepped down from the Temple board before representing Cosby in 2005, or asked Cosby to find another lawyer.

DELORES M. Andy had two heroines. There was Goldie E. Watson, a legendary Philadelphia civil rights leader who ran the Model Cities Program and told Congress where to get off when it found her in contempt for not answering questions about Communism in the McCarthy-era Red scare. The other was Ida B. Wells, journalist, crusader for justice and women's rights firebrand of the 1920s. Goldie Watson, who died in 1994, had a direct influence on Delores Andy, leading her into civil rights causes, including the march to integrate Girard College in 1965.

The lawyer who represented Bill Cosby in a 2005 sexual assault lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee said Sunday his client had been treated unfairly by the release of new excerpts from a deposition Cosby gave in the case. Published Saturday by the New York Times, the excerpts included sworn testimony in which Cosby discussed his serial philandering, his use of his celebrity to bed starstruck young women, and his use of drugs in sexual encounters. But, lawyer Patrick O'Connor said in his first public statements since the transcript's release, that's only one side of the story.

Tuition for incoming freshmen and sophomores at Pennsylvania State University's main campus would rise 2.7 percent, or $450, for 2015-16 under a proposal passed by the board of trustees' finance committee Thursday. In-state students would pay $17,022, up from $16,572 last year, the university said. Out-of-state students also would pay more. In March, the trustees approved a 3.89 percent increase in room-and-board costs. If the tuition proposal is adopted this week, the total per-student cost, including fees, would exceed $28,100 for next year.

Near the end of President Obama's speech Tuesday before the NAACP convention, Jeffrey Copeland heard the president tell the thousands at the Convention Center how the Francisville man had been arrested six times before his 35th birthday. Copeland, a 39-year-old full-time criminology student at Temple University, was stunned. "I didn't know that he was going to put it out like that," Copeland said Tuesday night.

Two more of Bill Cosby's accusers have joined in asking a federal judge in Philadelphia to release the full transcript of the actor-comedian's testimony in a 2005 assault and defamation civil case. In a motion filed Monday, Beth Ferrier and Rebecca Neal - both of whom have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them in the 1980s - joined an earlier request to release his deposition in a case brought by Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee who alleged that Cosby drugged and molested her. U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno unsealed excerpts from the deposition last week, among other legal documents in the case.

JODIE GREEN had just turned 18 when she enrolled at Temple University and, with an urge to write, dropped into the office of the Temple News, the undergraduate newspaper. "There was this guy with his feet on the desk wearing a beat-up corduroy cap that I doubted he ever took off, even in the shower," she said.
