Learning site closings?

@Tl4tMLA-5wbf does DeVry have a list of learning centers (as opposed to campuses)? I can't see where campuses and learning centers are differentiated on the website. Also, is there an up-to-date record of enrollment numbers by campus?

Low morale

I think we can safely say that morale has hit an all time low at DeVry. I can't find one person who is not forcing him or herself into coming to work every single day. How sad is that? And how do those on top expect to see any improvements in results... read more

No Student Evaluation Results Yet?

Does anyone else think that it’s suspicious that the student evaluations from last session haven’t been released yet? They are usually out much faster. I am wondering if it has something to do with the new ownership, maybe scrubbing the data before... read more

Adtalem changes Board

Changes in the ATGE Board. Chamberlain President out.

Stand-alone University

Anyone else find it interesting JB said DVU would be transitioning to a “stand-alone university”? Does this mean Cogswell/PV is out and DVU will sink or swim with no parent company? Interested in your thoughts on this.

Local Campus Community Sites Taken Down

The local DVU campus “community” websites have been taken down. A lot of the information was out of date anyway, but seems like an opening bid for a new round of consolidations and cutting. There are only a handful of faculty who have profiles on the... read more
