Thread regarding Art Institutes layoffs

Art Institute Summer Classes

Towards the end of Spring quarter, colleagues and I were wondering if campus would even be open after Summer quarter. All of my summer classes were cut yesterday, and roughly 80% of my department's majors (not including mine) went teach out as of late May-ish.

"Stop the whining"? REALLY? Who are YOU? Some bitter person w/ out hope.

I'm sure my fellows at DCEH are familiar with Matthew:

And Jesus said unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

Let us have fait than be calm. Bu let us testify:

Many of us have dedicated the best years of our professional careers to Art Institutes and their students. Some of us have pulled 50-60 hour weeks, teaching, grading, prepping--year after year after year w/ out a complaint OR a raise. Why? Because we care deeply for our students and our schools. We have led thousands of them to success.

So, if we are simply to be cast aside without warning, and without a meaningful severance package, that is beyond unfair--it's a gross violation of human decency. And isn't the Dream Center supposed to be led by dedicated Christians, who have publicly announced their faith?! How could ANY Christian spit in the face of some many good people who have done so much for so many? Personally, I won't believe it. I have to believe that, at the very least, we will be given the summer quarter to finish, tidy up our students' affairs, and then leave with a severance package that takes into account our years of service. As I said--anything less would be a slap in the face and decidedly un-Christian. Someone on another thread suggested it would cost too much to offer us severance. DCEH can easily afford it, especially seeing as they will be raking in dough based upon a school WE the instructors have built up. We are the only reason there's an Art Institute at all--GREAT, relatively inexpensive teachers.

But let's hope things aren't as bad as some of the doom and gloom -ers seem to want it to be. As a devoted Christian myself, I have faith that the leaders of DCEH already understand they need to treat all FT campus instructors and long-time employees in the way that Jesus teaches.
