Topics regarding layoffs at Art Institutes
Any word on the remains Art Institutes? Or the Recievership?
Just received a message that the labor board cannot help due to the receivership and if you choose to work it is basically at your own risk. If the bankruptcy happens, you have to file and try to get paid by the courts.
Absolutely not. All the money you’ve earned is your property. If your employer refuses to pay you what you’ve earned, you have every right to sue them for those unpaid wages. https://wageadvocates.com/faq/can-i-sue-my-employer-for-not-paying-me/
If you have not been paid in Nevada you can file a claim with www.labor.nv.gov. I heard that if you do not file a claim and everything goes into bankruptcy that you may not be able to file. Instructors file before May 31st deadline. Also you can... read more
I don't know about other campuses, but usually we're starting getting a bead on enrollment in the fall about this time. It's looking like a complete and total disaster, the word is out about the sorry state of things.
What's going with the last Ai's standing? Are y'all getting paid? Are students signing up? Not counting AiLV, because that's not EPF and it won't be Ai for much longer... #newSchool
UPDATE MARCH 8 2:35 P.M.: The Art Institute of Las Vegas professor William Turbay says the Department of Education confirmed today that the Las Vegas location is staying open. Students from other closing Art Institutes are already enrolling to the... read more

I want this school to succeed. I'm showing up.
Critics of for-profit institutions and nonprofit conversions by some for-profits said they were concerned about the ownership changes for the Art Institutes and its sister universities. “It looks highly questionable,” said Robert Shireman, a senior... read more
Our campus has been pretty quiet the last few months but noticed the digital resources are changing. New HR website and payroll. I assume this is just the start of an IT separation the court ordered with EPF / Studio and DCEH. The DCEH receiver has... read more
We are nonprofit and SACs accredited. Our campus numbers leveled off after year of drops. So much BS that students went to competitors. We did get bunch transfer students. People are feeling upbeat, but it could all fall apart if investment does not... read more

Can get this page going again for just Ai people.
Argosy schools are closing tomorrow. Any word on the remaining Ai schools?
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
Is there anyone here that knows what's happening at Ai-Virginia Beach? A reporter at the Virginia Pilot may be interested in a story.
If you know of any student veterans at DCEH schools who have not received their GI Bill payments, please tell them to communicate with Veterans Education Success. They should also contact the VA. https://veteranseducationsuccess.org/ @GIBillRights
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
Art institutes under receivership are no longer admitting new students. New students are not being accepted at AiP and AiPOD (aka AiO). Source: the 1/24 3 pm AiO meeting with Monday.
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
All Art Insitute of Atlanta full time faculty got laid off. Their insursance benefits are gone by Friday.
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
The Art Institute is currently under review by Middle States. I called them to complain and they said to use their contact form: https://www.msche.org/contact/ If you have something to say the time is now! The decision will be made by the end of... 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
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... read more
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
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
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
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/
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
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.
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
