University of Phoenix is rather quickly imploding as it relates to customers (students) so they will definitely be less classes overall which means less faculty. Also, UOP's 'new' model for dissertation students has them taking more group... — read more
University of Phoenix failed to implement, until recently, Aug. 25, 2019, the State of California Wage and Theft Protection Act of January 1, 2012. Basically CA non-exempt employees have not been paid accurately according to the law, e.g., hourly... — read more

Happy Holidays from Po. Just checking in. Po has been gone for almost 2 years now. You all have a great day.
How are the faculty numbers sustainable?

All this undereducated hypothesis-making and guessing is really getting old.
When managers do everything to get people enrolled, then call those targets names behind their backs. When the business blames its advertising firm for not being able to get more vulnerable prospects. When people get sick because they cannot take the... — read more
