DeVry is currently advertising that they had 45+ locations, but how many are just "ghost campuses"?. I could take a look at the NCES data, but it only has numbers up to 2016-17. https://www.devry.edu/about/campus-locations.html
Topics regarding layoffs at DeVry Inc.
My time at DOS at the end was just misery. They tried to preach that Take Hold Of Your Career or whatever that BS was called, but then threw up roadblocks to stop you. I gave up on it. Then there was a layoff at least once a year. Those who were left... read more
I was part of a layoff. To be honest, it was the best thing that could have happened. I was at Online Services. We had multiple rounds of layoffs over the last few years. After surviving each round, the environment became more and more oppressive... read more

For those who left after 2016: did you feel pressured to leave? What were your circumstances? For those who remain: do you feel pressured to leave? How are you coping?
Can you tell me more about what's happening for professors at DeVry? It sounds like you are being squeezed out. "we’re now being maneuvered into an increasingly untenable position the way these courses are being packaged, monitored and evaluated."... read more
Seems like DeVry is continuing to experience major financial difficulties that usually presage collapse. https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/about/data-center/school/hcm

Well the long anticipated change is on the horizon. Expect changes to come in the next 30 days and a reorg to come before the new fiscal year. JB was voted to stay for one reason and that's to "right size." Hello Tomorrow is near.
Most of my online students reject the idea of attending a live synchronous event, while my onsite students detest the online modality. Trying to combine them into this hybrid, kluged onsite/online “Frankenstein monster” is another naive, misguided... read more

How is DeVry circumventing the legal requirement to pay employees for manditory training such as CBC201?
I have many students who register but never submit a single assignment. They post one blank post per week so that the system records an "academic event" so they don't get dropped from the class. The only explanation for this behavior is that they are... read more

What should the HLC look for in their focused visit?
