I heard from a reliable source that all DeVry campuses will be moved out of Chamberlain or closed. This is the end people!

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 A lot of the information was out of date anyway, but seems like an opening bid for a new round of consolidations and cutting.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

Chicago Campbell Campus Relocating

DeVry has been looking for real estate to relocate the Chicago Campbell campus and get out of the building with CCN that Adtalem owns. They want to relocate near an L station for better accessibility for students. This will be an absolute mess trying... read more

EDMC/Dream Center - Layoff

If you want to know the future of DeVry (assuming the sale goes through) you might want to take a look at Education Management board today. About 6 months after the change in owners, the layoffs ramp up.


Don’t expect a large amount of layoffs before the sale but do expect a cleaning up and some restructuring of managers and other positions by the end of May. Cogswell (Palm Ventures) has yet to confirm the sale or made any form of public announcement... read more

How long do we have?

I know everybody here knows that DeVry's days are numbered, but what do you think how much longer do we have? In all honesty, I think we'll be done within two years, if not even sooner. Such low number of students is completely unsustainable, and... read more

Last month's layoffs

The post with Wardells Chicago address that is for sale disppared?

What is DOD hiding about Devry?

Why won't DOD reveal what schools were reviewed? Given the criteria for examining the worst offenders, DeVry should be on the list.

Have we heard anything on layoffs?

Have we heard anything on more layoffs at DeVry? There is very little info circulating right now, which can either be good because it means there will be no layoffs any time soon, or it can be really bad because it is the quiet before the storm. It... read more

IT Changes

It looks like their changing the responsibility of the IT. They will no longer be POC for setting up meetings for Town Hall, etc their appointing OSC's and Campus Deans the responsibility. Looks like an opening for lay offs for the IT Department.


DeVry will transfer ownership. Leases and subleases have already been signed. All the numbers and requirements have been flushed out for over a year. It is costly to separate an entity from another and the teach out would have already been put into... read more

Pay cut instead of layoffs

I would take a 20%-30% pay cut to save my job, since it’s been hella tough trying to get a new one ( three years on the market). They should give us that option before doing layoffs. It’s a much better choice than a 100% paycut. Unfortunately, I have... read more

I can't believe people are not aware of the truth of what a "for profit school" really is ??? sorry to burst anyone bubble, but DV is a BUSINESS. I'm so surprise certain employees don't believe this. I have been with DV for 10 years now. I have seen... read more

Palm Ventures

Palm Inc is out of business and Palm Ventures is not related to them. They are still in business. Does anyone think it’s strange they have not made any public announcements with the deal only be 3 months away?


Rumors are circulating a restructure is in its way. Plan is not been met and the declining enrollment is continuing. There are good intentions for this deal to go through and DeVry has longevity and history to turn around. Let’s not forget that all... read more

Are we heading in the same direction? I assumed for profits will thrive in the current environment. Am I wrong?

How do we survive the death of Devry university?

Einstein's famous quote, he said "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." But how do we think in a new way? How do we escape our own limited ways of seeing the world that determines what we do? How do... read more

Is DeVry complying with DOD MOU?

Do you really think DeVry is complying with the DOD MOU? I'm especially skeptical of this: f. Before enrolling a Service member, provide each prospective military student with specific information to locate, explain, and properly use the following ED... read more
