Statement from CMU President Tim Foster: Loss of a student (update)

Last fall, Colorado Mesa University mourned the loss of Brett Ojiyi, a CMU student who passed away as a result of an off-campus tragedy.

Last year’s preliminary reports were confirmed by the office of the Twenty-First Judicial District Attorney Dan Rubenstein who informed CMU officials Thursday that no charges will be filed related to the incident.

While the news may bring closure for some, the decision reminds us all of the tragic loss suffered by the entire CMU community. We continue to offer our sincere condolences and prayers to Brett's family and friends, and remind students and parents that CMU offers counseling and support services at the Student Wellness Center, 1060 Orchard Ave. The university also has crisis support resources available after hours, which can be arranged by contacting on-call services at 970-201-8472.
