The Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) Board of Trustees unanimously approved engagement of D. Stafford & Associates (DSA) to complete a comprehensive administrative inquiry of the facts related to allegations of sexual misconduct by Dr. Luke Hartman, a former employee of the university who served in the capacity of vice president of enrollment.

The purpose of the independent inquiry, which will begin immediately and is projected to be complete by mid-October, is to:

  • Determine the facts related to the allegations and whether appropriate administrative actions were taken based on available information about the employee;
  • Recommend procedures to further strengthen EMU’s commitment to the prevention of sexual misconduct and abuse and identify procedures to strengthen effective response to victims, offenders and the community harmed by sexual misconduct.
