Does College President Need a Private Locker Room?

September 24, 2015

Robert Breuder, president of the College of DuPage, is already on leave and could lose his job over criticism of his spending decisions. Now The Chicago Tribune has uncovered a relatively small spending decision compared to others, but one that critics say symbolizes what was wrong about his leadership. After DuPage, a community college outside Chicago, spent $24 million to upgrade a fitness facility, Breuder had a family changing room converted to a private locker room available only to him and to two other senior administrators. Documents obtained by the Tribune show that this was a priority item for Breuder, who declined to comment. A sign outside the locked room says "Authorized Personnel Only."
