Thread regarding University of Phoenix layoffs

2018-19 Numbers?

Everyone has seen the FY 2017 numbers...a loss of about $52 million, with losses in every segment except Arizona, and that was a very slim margin. What are the FY 2018 numbers and what are the projected FY 2019 numbers? It's hard to believe that it's anything other than another big loss. UoPX continues to spend enormous amounts on marketing and advertising, so they have to cut elsewhere.

It’s hilarious that management responds to these posts and tries to discredit anyone telling the truth. Is it BR or JB from enrollment? LOL. Management is getting desperate and looking pathetic.

@ZgZxDTY-3lud, go down the list of UoPX "locations" and most of them have been in the same sinking boat for the last year or more. They don't even have enough staff to answer phones or even to open the doors until the afternoon. That's why they all the calls go to Phoenix.

Detroit, as with most of the on-ground campuses shows

"We are not enrolling students for classes at this campus any longer..."

but "Students currently attending classes at this location will finish out their courses with us"

That has to be pretty grim for both students and instructors

@ZgZxDTY-3nof, I just called Detroit, through the Phoenix office, and they don't even answer the phone...at 11:30 CST! That's not a ghost campus?

@ZgZxDTY-3iuu, lots of these locations are nothing more than ghost campuses. If you try calling them, you get the Phoenix office. Few if any students, but with enrollment people still in the building. The leases have been a drain on the balance sheet and one wonders how long they will do this.

California campuses don’t even have many classes offered anymore. In Southern California most campuses are shutting down. Basic entry point classes are going away. All this money they dumped into each campus will be wasted.

Greed and terrible management is what will bring UOP down. I can’t wait for that day, even if that means I lose my job.

The F/T numbers are even worse in California, one of the last states to have physical campuses.

@ZgZxDTY-1aiu, your experience doesn't mean that others haven't been coerced to pass students. Just wondering, what do you teach? And have you seen any change in your students over the last 16 years?

I still teach online, have a current class, and have been teaching online/campus classes for 16 years. Not once have I ever been asked to pass a student.

@ZgZxDTY-1vne, it would also be helpful to have teachers come forward and talk about the conditions. Several years ago, the first person who taught me about University of Phoenix provided documents to me showing that the school was pushing them to pass students who didn't deserve to pass. That campus has since closed, but no one in the media would touch the story despite all the documentation. The same is happening now. There hasn't been a media report on University of Phoenix for more than a year and nothing earthshattering since they were acquired by Apollo Global. Media want numbers, but the numbers are stale.

I would like to see how the hire-and-fire strategy of getting rid of higher-rate instructors once they reach a pay step works against new hires who get paid base rate is working as both a cost-cutting and an instructional strategy. Then I would like to see class sizes over the last five years. I find it hard to believe that the .15 cents paid out on instruction out of every dollar is even possible given the losses from the IPEDS. For that matter, I would like to see the last five years of starting class sizes, completing class sizes, and job placement rates of those completors. I am sure it is a cosmic coincidence that almost every instructor might be at the low end of the pay scale. I am sure it is another cosmic coincidence UOPX hires as many "new" instructors as they fire. It would sound like a rigged system-no chance for advancement. It also suggests UOPX has a quality issues with instructors if they have to get rid of so many after years because "there are not enough students and you have not taught for several cycles so you are inactive". Yet, there appear to be students @ 40 + class sizes for new instructors who by some miracle may or may not be providing quality instruction even thought they are "new" and working with a class size model that has no data backing it up as a working, quality model.

Just go to The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and get the data yourself. If you have any questions about how to get the data, you can get individualized help.
