PUBLIC SAFETY
'U' hires
new DPS
director
Ann Arbor local
Greg O'Dell hired six
months after former
chief's medical leave
By SARAH ALSADEN
Daily News Editor
After months of searching for a
replacement for the position, Greg
O'Dell, former chief of police at
Eastern Michigan University, has
been hired as executive director
of the University's Department of
Public Safety.
O'Dell will begin his appoint-
ment on Aug. 22, according to Uni-
versity spokesman Rick Fitzgerald.
He will be replacing DPS Police
Captain Joe Piersante who is cur-
rently serving as interim public
safety director after former DPS
Chief of Police Ken Magee took a
medical leave of absence in Febru-
ary. Magee will remain on leave
and retain his title and salary until
O'Dell begins, according to Fitzger-
ald.
O'Dell's position will entail
overseeing and directing "crime
prevention, law enforcement, and
safety and security services of the
University," according to an Aug. 1
University press release. Fitzgerald
said he believes O'Dell's experience
and knowledge of the city will aid
him in accomplishing these tasks.
"He's got that great combina-
tion of deep knowledge of the Ann
Arbor community and the police
in this community specifically,"

FINANCING YOUR EDUCATION
Debt deal to eliminate some
graduate student loan funds

University officials
unsure of how
federal cuts will
affect enrollment
By ANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily StaffReporter
Graduate students who
depend on Direct Subsidized
Federal Loans to help finance
their education may encounter
problems as a result of the fed-
eral government's debt ceiling

bill that plans to stop allocating
funds to the program.
In a measure expected to
save the federal government $18
billion dollars, the agreement is
set to end the loan program -
which pays the interest on loans
collected by students while still
attending school - for graduate
and professional students start-
ing July 1, 2012.
Additionally, the settlement
will discontinue loan payment
incentives - percentage-based
rebates that graduate students
can earn after 12 successive
punctual loan repayments -

starting in July 2012.
After weeks of wrangling
between President Barack
Obama and top GOP officials,
the two provisions seemed to
amount to necessary conces-
sions for Democrats, who had
rebuffed Republican calls to end
the Direct Subsidized Federal
Loan program since President
Obama met with Republicans at
the White House in early July.
Last week, student financial
aid advocacy groups around the
nation expressed fear that the
end of these programs would
