Looks like someone got politically butthurt by the last version of this question—which wasn’t intended to be political (much), so let’s rephrase it without mentioning he-who-apparently-must-not be-named. In your opinion, which educational ventures... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at DeVry Inc.
Will there be more cuts or are we at the point when they literally can't lay off anybody else and continue to operate?
Did the annual reviews take place yet? If so, were you happy with the results?
Nothing to say?
Have the annual reviews begun?
What kind of numbers are there at the DeVry campuses? ED reports are two years old.
Does anyone have the latest email on the return to campuses or offices?
I graduated in 2016 with a Bachelors Business Administration. I was already working in a position prior to enrolling at DeVry. And when I tried to get help, I got generic service to participate in generic workshops and webinars. And then sent to a... — read more

Does anyone know exactly what the relationship is between DeVry and Cogswell and why they are feeding off our resources?
Cogswell has been going through major layoffs for five years straight. Their current enrollment is under 500 students. Closer to 450. What a joke.
Cogswell is in a contract with DeVry only to get operational cashflow. The plan is to phase out campuses but still collect on FA from the government. This is what happens. Check out the Cogswell Lay Off Site : https://www.thelayoff.com/cpc... — read more
Why is DeVry hanging on to the campuses at this point? Is it access to a handful of state aid eligible students and promising higher MAH payments to veterans? It seems like an awfully expensive way of simply maintaining "presence" when almost nothing... — read more

Is DeVryWorks still around? VP Mozden is off the leadership list on the website so it looks like he was included in the latest round of cuts.
Rollins College announced a 15% across the board personnel cut due to Covid-19. This applies to all departments, including open positions. Approximately 100 of the 750 employees are affected. Also the President and the leadership team are taking... — read more

A general comment, not necessarily DeVry related. With almost all college students required to be online due to COVID-19, many will find that online fits their life better than on campus. Something they didn’t expect or consider. I expect the... — read more
There are many parts to the current Coronavirus crisis and its effects on US higher education. But they all boil down to the Trump mantra (defund, deregulate, and privatize) and the opportunity for the elites to capitalize from the crisis, as they... — read more
According to MoneyInc.com, “DeVry University is located in Illinois, and we've included it as the worst college in America for 2019 because of the fact that only 29 percent of students who enroll actually graduate. The average debt for those who do... — read more
What is your opinon about what needs to be done next?
Amazing how course shells for adjuncts are set up with a student placeholder months ahead, the student is then eliminated closer to session and then course is finally cancelled yet the expectation is for adjunct faculty to train, set up course and... — read more
Post any information you have about the total headcount (I know it changes all the time). How about the main office at Downers Grove?
The bottom line is that the DeVry "classes" are a rigged system that takes people with almost zero academic skills and limited mental abilities, puts them through a diluted learning experience. This is designed to give them fake letter grades for... — read more

Can't tell the horses without a scorecard. https://collegemeltdown.blogspot.com/2019/11/ashford-university-suitor-joining.html
Changes are about to come down. More “consolidation” of positions and more jobs will be cut. A lot of changes will be happening between now and mid-February. Brush off those resumes and look for more centralization of operations.
Sad to see Devry cratering like this. I'm wishing all who somehow remain my best. Left in 2012 before it became so awful. Management was awful then–they never asked for my laptop because they didn't want to create an Exit Interview from me.
Is anyone here going to CCME in 2020? I hear that it's not what is used to be.
