Brace Yourself

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.

Are there any full-time faculty members left?

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.

IPPs: a Setup?

How do you feel about the IPP process these days? Are they fair and unbiased? Are they used aggressively to lay groundwork in case the organization needs to downsize further? Do end-course evaluations play a role in IPPs? Do faculty still compete... —  read more

End October Begin November

I'm thinking of my former colleagues and all the strife they must endure–from students, administrators, and (at time) each other. My body still recalls the stress. And let me also say, I left of my own free will. But, I fondly remember so many of... —  read more

Vague story on 2020 sessions off

Former full time faculty member here. Left for much greener pastures a while ago. Friends still there tell me talk of 2020 sessions off planning is pretty vague, and no commitments are being made. In fact, mgmt really doesn’t want to discuss it. So... —  read more

Is 2019 going to be the end for DeVry?

I heard an unsubstantiated rumor that DeVry is closing its doors for good at the end of 2019 and will do a teach-out in 2020. Seems Cogswell simply cannot manage its acquisition to keep it economically viable. Has anyone else heard this?

Is it too late for Devry instructors and staff to consider organizing? I probably brought this up years ago, when it may have made a bigger difference, and when more people cared about the school. Art Institutes had some union membership, in New York... —  read more

Devry scheduling cannibalism

I think the ship is really going down as it "seems" that the scheduling has increasingly less and less sections to offer online and there are many many payroll rats vying for those sections. So now the scheduling looks like a ship on which the rats... —  read more
