The president of Eastern Michigan University says she'll follow her board's suggestion and get counseling after receiving a threat of firing following an alcohol-related outburst.

Susan Martin disclosed Tuesday that she was reprimanded in the spring after an argument with an alumnus and she faces being fired if she is involved in any future public incidents related to alcohol use.

Martin told WJR-AM on Wednesday that she plans to take the board's suggestion and get counseling.

AnnArbor.com says she also plans to donate her raise this year to a campus alcohol education fund. Tax records show she made $295,000 last year, and she's scheduled for an $8,764 raise.

Martin has acknowledged a 2005 impaired driving case that regents were aware of before she was hired in July 2008.
