GLEN ELLYN, Ill. (AP) - Two days after a suburban Chicago community college announced its president was going on medical leave trustees placed him on paid administrative leave.

College of DuPage trustees Thursday voted 4-3 to tell 70-year-old school president Robert Breuder that he can’t “exercise the duties” of president and must turn in his keys, computers and other college equipment.

The college announced Breuder’s medical leave Tuesday night. The Glen Ellyn-based school has faced criticism over a $763,000 severance package to end Breuder’s contract next year, three years early. His compensation for this year is $484,812.

Subpoenas were served to administrators at the school last month, seeking documents including Breuder’s employment agreements, emails and college-issued credit cards. The college also is being investigated by DuPage County prosecutors and state education officials.
