All on ground staff at core Ais... ALL.... will be replaced with staff from Studio, an outside management company... Start asking questions!
I've done what you've asked I thought as I skulked down the hallway to my next class. But it was hard to contain the feeling of being abandoned by those who promised so much. What did I do? I feel like an innocent victim of the years of their lies. I... read more
To some at Ai, students are just a number, dollar sign or statistic to others they’re people who are interesting to get to know. We wish students well but they have to look out for themselves. If you’re a student who received a notice your debt to... read more
Any more news on what is supposed to happen on the 15th or 16th?
@W7HAwIR Truly an evil doppleganger's version of "Goodbye Mr. Chips" that succeeds in foisting on us an overtly nausea provoking paean to cultism that inexplicably works to sugar-coat the stench. How about that?
As the last weeks of our closing campus come to an end I will see the final graduating class across the stage. It is bittersweet but we had a good run until recently. Everywhere I go and mention the campus is closing people are shocked. Most of my... read more

Several Art Institute campuses were" for profit" for over 40 years before it became an issue. When EDMC was run by committed owners who supported quality programs and constantly reinvested in the campuses the money was well spent. Once predatory... read more
This is it folks. The last tightening of the belt. When a company completely restricts overtime it’s a good sign they are close to folding. Abandon ship and make plans.
The “San Diego campus is a ghost town” post was taken down, but it was SO ON POINT! People who are sub-par HAVE been promoted in Student Services and Admissions and it’s a joke. It has to be a joke. Right?? How do you let go of people who loved this... read more
Someone moved up and was promoted to provost - on ground - watch out! Who's taking their place online? probably ditching the position since no announcement was made at the same time for a replacement.
I feel bad for the Creative Arts.
After 16 years I was terminated without any severance or health care. The letter said since they notified me (WARN) that our my campus could be closing in 2018 there are no benefits offered. Funny that letter was followed by another that said ignore... read more
Can’t wait for more BS this week. Get apps, keep people engaged, what do you mean they decided not to go. Better hit at least 200 dials even though you won’t talk to anyone. Can’t wait.
I was laid off fro EDMC a few years ago... when looking for a new job, there were a couple of companies who told me no thanks specifically because of EDMC's reputation. But again, local Pittsburgh employers might be aware of how awful the company is... read more
Heard from a few people I should leave it off my resume when applying for a new job. Is this true?

I was let go in the reduction of force and have a letter stating that South would NOT appeal. And we were told they would not appeal as well. The DOL states that South is appealing it and I have a hearing under oath mid month (November). Has anyone... read more
When will AIP and AIO hear if they've lost their accreditation and if they do will they automatically go into Teach Out or will Dream Center care less and move forward with their plans unaccredited?
I visited Miami campus recently and they had similar layoffs. I was told the entire full time faculty is now 8 after almost 20 were cut. It is not a teach out campus. This is what happened at Fort Lauderdale, lay off the bulk of full timers, replace... read more

My friend Tom Cal at the Veteran Mentor Network has alerted me about the proliferation of coding bootcamps and their reluctance to tell consumers what they need to know to make good decisions. Are these bootcamps meeting all their hype? Are they... read more
Looks like the higher-ups feel it is working as intended and we just need to dial. I wonder if they’ll tell us the results of the smiley face survey they sent out. I know for a fact the everyone that took it ripped apart the new system. Yet nothing... read more
