For employees who were laid off - how is your job search going, or have you already found better opportunities?

UP advertising that they have "up to" $1 million in scholarship money to give.....since they charge close to $90,000 for an "education", that is about 10 people. Please don't buy this BS. Go to a community college. Even a trade school would give... — read more
Don't enroll students with insufficient background education, and hand them degrees which have no market values... I taught for 6 years at ground campuses in MD, DC, and VA between 2010 and 2016. I started in Columbia in MD ground campus in 2010... — read more
At this late date in the history of academic college scams , students almost deserve years of debt that will live with them the rest of their lives. I'm not sure what more can be said.

I assume layoffs are coming soon. The school has stopped marketing. There’s no leads coming in. Genesys and Salesforce have stopped working. Management has zero interest in solving these problems. Why? Too many overpaid executives at the top that... — read more
I had a one on one with a VP of Enrollment. He sat with his legs tightly intertwined like a pretzel with his arms wrapped around his stomach. One hand was clutching his side and the other hand held a finger pressing tightly to his clenched mouth. His... — read more

University of Phoenix could have listened to its best people and become a stronger organization by accepting constructive criticism. Instead, it has become a symbol of American Greed and the demise of America's largest university. Over the years... — read more

Anyone here "in the know" re current enrollment at UoP? I'm seeing many instructors complaining about not getting teaching assignments.
The new faculty pay model is basically an insult to long-term and doctoral-level faculty. UOP ended the extra pay for faculty who had taught for years and for faculty with PhDs. Pay is now on based on which school the course is in. Essentially, all... — read more
How does it feel to know that UoPX has been ripping off veterans and US taxpayers? I've tried to get the VA to produce records that may show this, but they refuse. 577 complaints, the most of any school, by far. And 343 complaints related to... — read more
