Trustees of a suburban Chicago college have voted to void the contract of its embattled president about a month after beginning the process of firing him.
College of DuPage trustees voted 4-3 Thursday night to void Robert Breuder's contract. He's on paid administrative leave and is set to retire in March.
Board of Trustees attorney Timothy Elliott says the board contends that it now doesn't have to give Breuder a severance deal worth $763,000 after voiding his contract. The severance deal ends his tenure three years early, and law enforcement is investigating the deal and other issues.
Trustees also voted 4-2 to nix plans to name its Homeland Security Education Center after Breuder. The building will be named after Army Staff Sgt. Robert J. Miller, a Wheaton native who died while serving in Afghanistan in 2008.
