Topics regarding layoffs at ECMC

Declining culture

ECMC is not the same. We have lost our identity. We need a single leader. this group approach isn't working. Decision-making is too slow. Senior leadership is not very friendly. LOTS of jobs open downtown!

Sweat shop master

I hope there is an investigation by the trump administration. Nothing is better for faculty since ecmc took over cci. Benifits are higher cost, work day is 12 hours paid for 8, you have to work unpaid overtime for what used to be paid holidays, new... read more

IT not running the company!

Hey, I still work there and I'm in IT. It's not so rosy. Dave Hawn intervened early in the year and talked a bunch of us into staying. In exchange he flew the coop. Most of us are now looking. benefits are great so most of us are being picky but... read more

Board should do the right thing

And resign right along with Hawn. You purchase a company and allow the DOE to dictate terms on a transition plan for a business you know nothing about. Any of the CCI Execs could have stayed on for a six month transition and taught you minimally what... read more

$490K in DC influence (Podesta Group)

How much value did ECMC get from having Podesta Group lobbying in DC? Three of the lobbyists were "revolving door" folks.

Dave H

The BOD should be embarrassed by your appointment and immediately move to replace you. You are horrible!


You should have kept Owen, Wilson, Bosic and Mortensen. You wouldn't be in this mess had you not listened to the DOE, K. Dean, R. Kenyon or any of the other's why they where never in charge and you where so arrogant you thought... read more

I always love hearing a student whine over wine

Please see that and start running the campuses like a school business! There is a wealth of knowledge in the field so stop trusting everything the inexperienced RVPO's are saying what is best for schools! We thought CCI was a hot mess, I would take... read more

Anymore riffs coming? Are most of us going to survive the end of this quarter into the next. They seem to be keeping the really weird former PL's and PD's and got rid of the normal ones, so I guess that's the trend. Curious as to how it shakes out... read more

Assistant Dean Position?

Does anyone know what the new assistant dean (AD) position's job description is? They replaced the program lead positions with the new AD, but the PLs (as much as we may not have liked what they did) were busy!

Another major RIF just announced

Yes, just today Dave Hawn just announced another 750 employee rift coming in a matter of days! Yes, the wind down continues and the student population number declines. Major RIF going to take place in admissions. Not surprising since the enrollment... read more

Springfield, MO Admissions Dept

I am curious does other admission departments stalk potential prospects like we do?? I believe that this type of call strategy is what got is in this problem recruiting non-driven students.


Why did ECMC form Zenith Education Group in September of 2014 with help from the DOE? Why iis Zenith Education Group a dot org and not a dot edu company? Why was Zenith's application for a registered trademark denied? Why did Dave Hawn refuse to... read more

Tell me why the director of career services....

I for sure agree with everyone who said it is all about numbers. The Director of career services was told by a long time manager at one of our externship sites that he did not recommend them sending any more students to his site because the doctor... read more

Everyone Must Be Happy

Everyone must be happy with what's going on. Boards are very quiet except for EOU people bitching and whining. All other campuses must be doing fine now. Maybe it's all the new sensitivity training that's making everyone feel secure with Zenith. Make... read more
