Westfield State urged to rein in president’s spending

Inspector General Glenn A. Cunha has found that Westfield State University president Evan Dobelle violated school policy by using credit cards for personal expenses, and spent money earmarked for programs and scholarships “indiscriminately with little or no consideration” for its intended purpose.

In a two-page letter sent Thursday, the day before Dobelle and the trustees are scheduled to meet with state education officials, Cunha also urged the school’s trustees to “move quickly” to scrutinize Dobelle’s spending and his claims that his expenditures have brought the school a “return on investment” worth millions of dollars.
