The College of DuPage finally had a meeting with all trustees present.
After boycotting every board meeting since November 19, veteran trustees Erin Birt, Dianne McGuire and Joseph Wozniak showed up to the February 3 meeting. The move enabled the group to finally establish a quorum for voting on college business, but the gathering wasn’t without some drama.
There were actually two meetings held that night: one at 5:30 p.m., called by the boycotting trustees and the other at 7 p.m., called by the three newer trustees. In a reversal of roles, the 5:30 p.m. meeting was canceled as the newer trustees did not attend.
The boycott had been launched after the sudden resignation of former Chairwoman Katherine Hamilton. The trustees have until February 11 to choose her replacement, after which it will be decided by the Chairman of the Illinois Community College Board.
Some of the business handled at the meeting included the approval of new hires and ethics training for employees.
