GLEN ELLYN, Ill. (AP) - The leader of the College of DuPage Board of Trustees has resigned, citing only “personal reasons” for her abrupt departure.

Chairwoman Katharine Hamilton said she was resigning, effective immediately, in a letter emailed Sunday evening to Interim President Joseph Collins and trustees. Hamilton declined to elaborate on the reasons for which she’s resigning to the Chicago Tribune (https://trib.in/1McjLsC ).

Her resignation comes as the college continues to search for its next president after trustees voted in September to void the contract of former president Robert Breuder.

Three lawsuits filed in recent months by Breuder and other ousted administrators claim Hamilton fired them to bolster her political agenda.

College of DuPage, the largest community college in Illinois, is under federal and state investigation.
