After Student Death, Eastern Michigan Ombuds Acts as University Spokesperson

In the weeks after a student died in on-campus housing at Eastern Michigan University, students have become restive over the lack of information from administrators. After another student was arrested as a suspect, it was EMU's ombudsperson, Gregory Peoples who provided details. Peoples also promised that the University would be more transparent about investigations in the future. Peoples is also Dean of Students, which raises the question of why he would be quoted as the ombudsperson instead. (Grand Rapids Press; EMU Echo.)
