Arizona State University’s journalism school announced it was rescinding the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, named after the longtime news anchor, that it gave to Mr. Rose in 2015. Also on Friday, the University of Kansas journalism school said it was taking back its William Allen White National Citation, which it gave him this year.

In a statement, Christopher Callahan, dean of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State, said he believed Mr. Rose’s alleged transgressions were “so egregious that they demand nothing less than a reversal of history.”

This was the first time the university had rescinded the award since it started to bestow it in 1984.
