An alcohol-fueled argument between the president of Eastern Michigan University and an alumnus has led the university’s Board of Regents to issue a warning to the institution’s leader. As the Detroit Free Press reports, the board wrote a letter to Susan W. Martin, who became the university’s president in 2008, to tell her that the “use of alcohol and the potential resulting conduct, including inappropriate comments about the university, its employees, its board, and the use of profanity is simply unacceptable.” The letter, signed by three members of the board, notes that she could be terminated if there are any further incidents. In a message to the university, Ms. Martin said that she had “made a vow to never cover up or hide anything.” She added that she had apologized for the “unpresidential” incident. Ms. Martin was convicted in 2005 of impaired driving, a fact she disclosed to the board before being hired as president. The university has also posted a copy of her driving record online.
