College of DuPage Board Affirms Presidential Buyout

January 29, 2015

The board of the College of DuPage on Wednesday voted for the second time in a week to approve a $763,000 severance package for President Robert Breuder, The Chicago Tribune reported. Many critics, some of whom packed the board room, said that Breuder should be dismissed, and many called on board members to quit. Trustees noted that Breuder had a valid contract that the college was buying out. The second vote came after criticism that the first one did not follow proper procedure because there was not a vote to end debate before the board took a vote on the package. While college leaders expressed doubt about the criticism, they said that they wanted to take a second vote to be sure that everything was done properly.
