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

Topics regarding layoffs at DeVry Inc.
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
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
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
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
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
DeVry online folks , do you know the status of your jobs yet ?
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
Palm Ventures also owns Post University and Nightingale College, two other subprime colleges. http://www.palmventures.com/private1/
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
Is kamdyn ok????
As often speculated here, official announcement of sale of DeVry University to Cogswell.
They always collect ‘good’ numbers and then fire up another round of sh4tcanning. Then again, the last round might not even be over. I actually no longer care at all and will tell them exactly what I think. There’s no point in dressing it up since... read more
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
I've read here before that some people received adverse reactions from potential employers to having DeVry listed among previous workplaces. Is this true? Should I really leave DeVry off? Isn't missing five years on the resume going to be an even... read more
Which DeVry campuses will close next? What campuses will stay open throughout 2018 and 2019? https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/devry-headed-wrong-direction-dahn-shaulis/?trackingId=WMxA3wQ1R8ud%2Be%2BP4U%2BiWQ%3D%3D
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
Is DeVry still teaching students at Ft. Leavenworth?
How are DeVry enrollment reps evaluated? Do you have to make numbers?
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
Here are the bottom lines for DeVry: DeVry is not a university or college, it is a for-profit corporation designed to enrich its owners and managers by delivering a service. DeVry does not have students, it has customers. DeVry’s service is... read more
is there another company that is stupid enough to do it? one of the other for profits? Poor employees.
Word is that the locations that were impacted from the last restructure will not be running a January session after all. This has not been communicated to the impacted locations
"One of the most upsetting stories in the film is that of Murray Hastie, an Iraq War veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder whose Google search led him to GIBill.com, a for-profit website designed to look like an official government page. A... read more
Post your predictions for who's getting the layoff next. INITIALS ONLY, region/group, then why you think so. Not who you think SHOULD be laid off, but a guess about who is ACTUALLY next to go. Winners receive one week pay for each year of service... read more
...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
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 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
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
Revenue at DeVry University decreased 20.8%, or $25.1 million, to $95.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018 compared to the year-ago quarter as a result of decreases in undergraduate and graduate enrollment. DeVry University enrollment... read more
Dept lost one team lead and 15 workers today
So much is making sense now if you are actually looking at faculty evaluations. You would need to distinguish between on-campus faculty and online faculty. They are worlds apart. On-campus faculty are highly invested in the success of the students... read more
Nobody retires from Devry University on their own. Everyone has a number and at some point your number will be called. It wasn't alway like this but over the last 20 years Devry has changed for the worse. Sadly there is a stigma for all that work... read more
Adtalem was the largest recipient of Federal Perkins Loans in 2015, getting $18M from the US government. What happened to all that money? And now that this flow of cash is removed, where is the difference being made up?... read more
Today the senior leaders of IT announced that most of the infrastructure and operations work being done for Adtalem, and the institutions, by the IT department in Downer's Grove is being outsourced to CapGemini (all in the name of student... 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
Did I read this right about Carrington and Federal Perkins Loans? If so, what does this mean for Carrington? "Carrington College has recently reassigned all outstanding Perkins loans to ED, and is no longer making new awards or disbursements. This... read more
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
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.
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
