Eastern Michigan University hires new general counsel
For the first time in more than 20 years, Eastern Michigan University has named a new general counsel to oversee its legal affairs.
Pending approval by the EMU Board of Regents, Gloria Hage will begin her appointment March 1.Â Hage will be paid $230,000 a year.
Hage joins EMU from the University of Michigan, where she served as associate vice president and deputy general for the office of the vice president and general counsel. She oversaw and advised on legal matters involving U-M's schools and colleges, the U-M Health System and various off-site facilities. Hage has served in that role since 2003, but joined the office in 1992 as assistant general counsel.
Hage received her juris doctorate, as well as a bachelor's degree in English language and literature, from U-M.
Her selection followed a search by the EMU Executive Council, a group that includes top EMU administrators and presidential cabinet members.
