An open message to the EMU community and the public regarding the death of a student

EMU student passes away; EMU community mourns

YPSILANTI — The entire EMU community was saddened to learn of the death of one our students on campus this week. We offer our most heartfelt condolences to the student's family.

You may have seen reports in the media regarding this situation. At the request of the family and out of respect for their privacy, EMU will not release the student's name or identifying information. EMU's Department of Public Safety is working closely with the medical examiner's office to determine the cause and circumstances of death. At this point, there is no reason to suspect foul play. We are fully confident in the safety and security of our campus environment, and our campus officials will remain vigilant in ensuring safety for all members of our campus community.
