GLEN ELLYN, Ill. (AP) - The troubled College of DuPage in suburban Chicago has a new board chairwoman.

The Daily Herald reported (https://bit.ly/1SoIeiL ) Deanne Mazzochi was elected Thursday evening. She has been serving as the acting chairwoman since former chairwoman Kathy Hamilton resigned in December.

Mazzochi says she’s interested in further discussions with board members about establishing “good government principles.” She says the college faces many issues moving forward.

College of DuPage is the largest community college in Illinois with 28,000 students. The school is under federal and state investigation after reports of lax financial oversight and questionable spending of taxpayer and donor money. It also fired its president.

In December, an accreditation agency put the school on probation for two years.
