Topics regarding layoffs at Art Institutes
Re-posted from DCEH board: I was on this call this morning, was debating as to how I can leak this info without making my position to obvious to our boys upstairs, and it's already on the board! I'll provide what ever extra I can though. The bullet... read more
What Art Institutes Students Need to Know About Teach Outs & Campus Closures http://blog.debtcollective.org/what-art-institutes-students-need-to-know-about-teach-outs-campus-closures/
400 students at Art Institute of Portland. They do represent the Artsy environment of the Pearl District, and won't just disappear meekly into the sunset. These students are accustomed to interactive teaching, and won't be converted to online... read more
No difference in how they treat their employees based on this. That's about 30 campuses and A LOT of jobs and students being hung out to dry. I'd really like to know their definition of "agile". At Dream Center Education Holdings (DCEH), we are... read more
Most staff was told by a mailed letter. Sad that Dream Works educational holdings could not man up and tell people in person. Sadder for some very talented students. I guess a few bad apples ruined it for the rest.
Three campuses, including the Art Institutes in Durham and Charlotte and South University in High Point, are expected to shut down before the end of the year. The University of North Carolina system was notified this week that Dream Center Education... read more
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... read more
I'm only an adjunct so any severance issues don't apply to me... but there is an open question if the arbitration agreements signed with EDMC when originally hired transferred over to DCEH. Nor am I a lawyer but am someone quite interested in it. I... read more
If there's only 9-11 campuses left, there's likely no need for a centralized location for Ai schools . DCEH could easily move things over to LA where Dream Center is headquartered. Ai was always the outlier in the whole EDMC purchase. An arts school... read more
I’m an employee at an AI in California and the postings about school closures are true. Back in January, our SDOA explained to us that July is crucial for us. We want to be standing with flying colors so DCEH can look towards us. SDOA saying this day... read more
If not for AiO, AiP would have closed when they sold the building. Most full-time faculty at AiP were let go years ago. For those who have been with Ai for a while, AiP Online Division was “Ai Online” originally, no reason it cannot go back to it... read more
Highly unlikely that AiP will come out of warning. Middle States is pissed that Ai lied to them about the ACICS schools looking at WASC as well as Middle States. It's a trust issue. Middle States never trusted DCEH even from when they tried to buy... read more
Looks like someone dug something up. Remember this? https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/edmc-keeps-art-institutes-students-staff-dark-dahn-shaulis/
All Ai employees, from admissions to career services, know the reality of Ai/EDMC/DCEH practices. There have been success stories with graduates in a couple of majors, but also, a lot of hurt students as well (those that never should have been... read more
Hello - do you have a list that will show what AI schools will be closing in 2018. I'd like to see: Campus location Number of employees laid off Date for closure Number of students affected Not sure if you have any data that can be used in an... read more
What kind of severance payment will be given to the employees if a decision to close some campuses is made. Do we know if they even have plans to pay anything - I am assuming it should be at least a couple of weeks of pay but not sure - please share... read more
Rumors as of today: 22 Art Institutes to close this year. 9 will remain open. final list pending
EDMC (Art Institutes' parent company)is having major financial and legl difficulties. Are Art Institutes people posting on the EDMC layoff site?

Is this the one in San Francisco - expensive like hell. How do you even repay your loan? I saw majors listed on the website, some cool shit listed there like social media stuff - do you really need a college degree there. if they were interested in... read more
