Houston Meetings with the President

Has anyone attended the meetings with the President to find out what direction Houston is supposed to go in since there is no faculty chairs, faculty coordinator, or registrar, and a new dean that's shared between Houston, Austin, and San Antonio?

Is this the last nail in the coffin?

Our campus offices are almost empty now that most of the full time faculty are gone and they are laying off the support staff. No investment in the school since before EDMC put us up for sale. No budgets for buying anything new. Campus decor dated... —  read more

Then This Happened

Tuition Increase

How are your current students handling the tuition increase? I'm nervous to see how this is going to affect our campus.

AiLV is a hot mess

How are they maintaining accreditation with these "instructors" ? Can anyone just step in and be called faculty now? No experience, no knowledge , and no master's... Ruining the institution of college.

Good Times.

Our campus couldn't afford the rent for the first floor (we only had 3), so they closed it and now it's going to be a bank, So now we are only on the 2nd and 3rd floor of 6 story building with other companies underneath and above us. Good times.

I told you...

I tried to warn you.. but you didn’t listen. This is only the beginning of the end.
