College of DuPage under federal investigation

In a sign of intensifying scrutiny of the College of DuPage, federal prosecutors have opened a wide-ranging criminal investigation at the embattled community college, issuing two subpoenas this week that seek documents tied to spending and other matters, according to records obtained late Wednesday.

The subpoenas, which were served to college administrators Monday, cover three main areas: administrator expenses, contracts with the college’s fundraising foundation and credits awarded to police recruits at a law enforcement academy on the Glen Ellyn campus.

The subpoenas come as the publicly funded college has been grappling with tough questions about spending and financial oversight, including the awarding of one of the largest severance packages ever to a public employee in Illinois to its president, Robert Breuder.

The school released the subpoenas in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from the Chicago Tribune.
