Oakland University professor, Joseph Schiele, is accused of running a drug house, providing drugs such as marijuana and ketamine to students, and a felony firearm charge.

Schiele, who has been a professor at OU since 2004, has been placed on paid leave, after charges were brought against him. A “review” of the professor in 2015 on “RatemyProfessor,” noted: “Basically absent and tried to run the class completely remote control. Was very inconsistent with requirements. Syllabus stated one requirement but his examples of good work were 4X the requirement. Responses to the many questions due to his lack of direction were delayed if answered at all. Is a detriment to the Oakland MBA program.”


According to WDIV, tips had been accumulating since January 2016, including a 22-year-old female student who told the court she had visited “at least 30 times” for visits including alcohol, cocaine and ketamine. A 19-year-old student said Schiele provided him with alcohol, marijuana and ketamine. Ketamine was discovered when a search warrant on Schiele’s home in Oakland township was carried out by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office. h/t theoaklandpress

Schiele holds a bachelor’s degree in politics and law, an MBA in international business and a Ph.D. in operations management.

Another review of Schiele seemed to poke fun at his arrest: “I really enjoyed his class, almost as much as snorting ketamine with him afterword”
