College Of DuPage Trustees Vote On President Buyout Package Again

Jan 28, 2015

College of DuPage trustees will vote again on a $762,000 buyout package for the school's president. But officials of the college refuse to elaborate on what the new vote is about. 


The board last week voted to accept the severance deal for President Robert Breuder.

The deal will pay Breuder nearly three times his base salary when he retires in March 2016, which is three years before his contract expires. He's been the college's president since January 2009.

Board Chairman Erin Birt says the contract was approved by the board and will remain approved. Others criticize the buyout package as a waste of taxpayer funds.
