Thread regarding Art Institutes layoffs

Ai Employees Shouldn’t be Surprised

This is from a March 2017 article, Ai was never of interest to Dream Center, “Ai will probably involve the most change” but no productive changes happened:

Schools that will retain their independent boards of trustees, staff and faculty as they become acquired by the Dream Center Foundation include South University, Argosy University and Western State College of Law at Argosy.

"South University is very well run and is a high quality institution as is Argosy and the law school," said Randall Barton, managing director of Dream Center Foundation. "The Art Institutes will probably involve the most change."

Those changes include hiring a new Art Institutes provost as well as program changes to respond to a recent federal warning. Ten of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh's programs failed a new federal test aimed at measuring whether their vocational programs' typical graduates make enough money to handle paying off student debt.

"Although nonprofits are not subject to gainful employment," Barton said, "we want every degree to lead to a good job."

“South University is a well run high quality institution” is you’re takeaway from this post?

The point of the article was DCF hesitating to take on Ai schools, "Although nonprofits are not subject to gainful employment," Barton said, "we want every degree to lead to a good job."

No wonder Ai is closing. If employees can’t interpret an article how can anyone expect their students to?

@uoj2YD-zam

South University Online (collegescorecard.ed.gov) reports a 3% graduation rate over a 6 year allowable reporting period.

This disgraceful number has held steady for years and belies any reason for South's participation in the field of higher education (especially nursing education). To make matters worse ALL South schools have terrible graduation rates.

So why berate me when you should be asking yourself: What business am I really in?
