Community college vs UTI expensive tuition.

When I worked at UTI, there was an admissions pamphlet about why UTI is better than community college. One of the things I remember is that at UTI you graduate faster and don't waste your time having to take history, literature etc. I would like to... —  read more

How do my students complete the lab assignments if you take my computers from my lab area? Am I supposed to allow my students to leave the lab environment to complete their lab assignments in the LRC? I hope you realize that I can’t be in two places... —  read more

Going, going, gone.

I feel like I needed to start a new thread because I am starting to feel as if UTI management puppets are contaminating our posts and threads now. Is UTI that scared and intimidated by their own employees that instead of listening to us or trying to... —  read more

Organizing

If you decide to go outside to establish a local, do shop around. While union organizers may be hard working, many mainstream unions are rotten at the top levels. Ultimately, a union is only as good as its local membership and their willingness to... —  read more

Safety concerns

It is my understanding from another employee that a student of Middle Eastern decent and of the Muslim religion had made what would be considered by many as a terrorist threat in lab earlier this week. This individual also was herd making threatening... —  read more

UTI slashes dividend 80%

Wow....stuff like this doesn't happen to healthy companies. UTI just admitted they are screwed, in my opinion. Demolishing the quarterly dividend from $0.10 per share to a mere couple copper pennies is not the way to reverse the share price slide.

Admission Reps - salary

Paying them based on graduation rates (which is what they used to do) but in no way has any control over, is completely unethical. Yes let's continue to force the students to PAY for education that doesn't warrant the tuition!

If you want the media involved.....

If you want the media involved, you have to present a compelling story. The truth is, there were lots of stories in 2014 and 2015 about bigger schools, such as Corinthian Colleges (Everest/Wyotech/Heald), ITT Tech, Devry, and University of Phoenix... —  read more
