Bucknell University has removed references on its website to CBS chief executive Les Moonves, an alumnus of the school, after sexual harassment allegations against him.

The New Yorker magazine published the allegations from several women late Friday.

PennLive.com reports Bucknell President John Bravman said in a letter to the university community that the school "will not stand for sexual misconduct on campus or beyond."

Moonves, a 1971 graduate, gave the school's commencement address in 2016, according to the school's website.

Links to stories on the speech and other news mentioning Moonves appeared on the website Monday morning, but the stories had been removed.

Moonves has acknowledged he may have made some women uncomfortable by making advances years ago, but that he never misused his position to hinder anyone's career.
