Student loan defaults skyrocketing

For those who havent figured out what's going on, let me summarize it. From around 2009 until 2015'ish, the govt practically gave money away to anyone who could sign their name on a piece of paper stating they would use it for school. Kids using the... read more

Sad but not unexpected

I was an employee of DeVry and I had a feeling that 90% placements were phony. Still, I think bigger issue was not delivering value and charging such high prices. If Devry did not expand for all degrees but stayed as a small technical school... read more

This is what our students are going through

I am a student at Keller in Jacksonville. Since enrolling in late 2015, I have seen onsite class sizes drop from 8-12 students to just two or three. That is, if there is a class onsite. Some terms there are only one or two classes onsite and they... read more

Why did DeVry Fail

Let’s be honest, DeVry started going downhill when they let every student in who was breathing. Many had no business being in college because they were ill prepared. Deficient in Math, English, Reading, etc. Everyone in Admissions perpetuated this... read more

Missed Opportunity

In transferring ownership, they really missed an opportunity. They should have transferred ownership to the employees and let DeVry University continue as an employee-owned company (like was done Avis, United Airlines, etc.). The current employees... read more

It is a shame

I am a DV alumnus and worked at DVU for several years. I have since moved on and think fondly on the days when DV made a difference. Unfortunately senior leadership's (you know who you are) focus changed, sometime after Hamburger came on board. The... read more

It is all truly all about $

One valid thing Camden repeatedly points out is how these are corporations/companies own colleges (with students as customers) versus a college with students as learners. Yes, all schools have to stay afloat financially. However, the taint that these... read more

CLASS ACTION SUIT

IT WAS MENTIONED BY OUR DIVISION LEADER THAT SHE KNEW ABOUT THE TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP FOR OVER 10 MONTHS AND WAS HAPPY THAT SHE COULD FINALLY TALK ABOUT IT IN PUBLIC. THIS MEANS THAT BEHIND ALL OF WARDELL'S "WE ARE ADTALEM" PEP TALKS, SHE HAS BEEN... read more

DeVry being Sold

As often speculated here, official announcement of sale of DeVry University to Cogswell.

Instructors expected to be tutors as well

A fundamental flaw in DeVry's approach was to blame the instructors for the lack of student learning, rather than realizing that most students lacked the skills to succeed in higher education, and that the DeVry classes were not structured to help... read more

DeVry on resume, yes or no?

The fall of once good school

I worked for DeVry for nearly 2 decades. I left of my own free will, and was fortunate to be able to do so. I feel for all who are tied to their unhappy employment without resources to quit--I was once one of you, and I know your pain. At the end, in... read more

Recipe for disaster

DeVry was an okay tech school when it was DeVry Institute and only offered associate's degrees. Then it cut classes to 8-weeks, dropped any pretense of admission standards, started calling itself a "university", and some moron in marketing made... read more

Problem 5: Calculate The Speed...

...at which Herman DeVry is currently rotating in his grave. Number of rotations per minute is an acceptable format for your response but be sure to account for the Earth's underground gravitational pull (assume depth of six feet unless you can prove... read more

Micro management and BFF

Do all of the 6 regions of DeVry micro-manage as much as the Chicago/Central region. TZ spends most of his time not only micro managing faculty,but he also has his faculty chairs do the same. In addition to this, each session, a teacher is observed... read more

Online education has to change to become great

Online education could be great, but not as it is currently approached. The pressure to "persist" students is a central problem. The student-professor (instructor/facilitator) void is also a problem--even keenly committed faculty have difficulty... read more

CEO Has "Sense of Urgency" With DeVry's Meltdown

Peter Appert Got it, thank you. And I’ll direct all my questions to Pat. Yes. The DVU numbers continue to look like challenging frankly, in terms of the enrollments or here what you’re saying in terms of repositioning, et cetera. But it’s hard to see... read more

In your opinion what would be the best company or organization to purchase DVU to give it even a minimal chance of survival? Maybe Arizona State Uni or some other school with a lot of virtual students? Maybe Coursera or another MOOC host? Amazon? You... read more

Naperville building closing

I heard from a reliable insider source that the ultimate plan is to shut down the Naperville building entirely, which means all the DeVry Online and Chamberlain Online employees would be remote. This would make sense, considering that a high... read more

DeVry Education Layoffs 2018

You can never tell if layoffs are planned, but if HR has too many meetings with closed doors you got to be freaked out. I am in Downers Grove.

DeVry Tech = ITT Tech?

Some eerie similarities between DeVry Tech and ITT Tech. Both defunded the schools. Both refused to upgrade their computers. Both had high student loan default rates. Both had institutional loan programs with high interest rates. Both deceived their... read more
