The Senate Higher Education committee has asked the Presidents of Illinois’ nine public universities and 38 community colleges to submit information on salaries and perks for all senior leaders. This includes everything from employment contracts and severance packages to housing and car allowances, for the past ten years.
The Subcommittee on Executive Compensation is asking College of DuPage President Dr. Robert Breuder, along with several COD Trustees, to appear before its members to discuss the nearly $763,000 severance package that will be awarded to Dr. Breuder when he retires in March of 2016.
Dr. Breuder has repeatedly declined to discuss the severance package, but could be subpoenaed in this case if he refuses to comply.
The panel plans to publish their findings online after they have finished their investigation, which they hope to wrap up by May.
