Federal authorities are investigating the College of DuPage, a school official confirmed late Wednesday.
Kathy Hamilton, the vice chairwoman of the school’s board, said subpoenas were issued Monday.
The Chicago Tribune first reported the federal investigation. Administrators at the College of DuPage were served with two subpoenas that seek documents about spending and other issues, the Tribune reports.
Spokeswomen for both the U.S. Attorney’s office in Chicago and the FBI declined to comment.
Randall Samborn, a spokesman for the College of DuPage, said in a statement that officials are “confident in the proper conduct of their affairs and will fully cooperate with any government investigation.”
Hamilton said the board, which includes newly elected members, “will be taking any allegations seriously and will be working with law enforcement to resolve any issues.”
