University of Phoenix Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at University of Phoenix

You know how you can tell when a business is failing?

Enrollment is down to 85,000?

Did UoPX actually give out enrollment numbers to faculty? Is it really 85,000? If so, this is significant. But you cannot add it to Wikipedia unless it's in a verifiable source.

There are still conscientious employees at Phoenix

I am one of them. I have no illusions about what we do and how we do it; however, we do educate students. A student in my course leaves knowing more on the last day than they did on the first day. Is it a quality education? Define quality. Much of... —  read more

University of Phoenix and the College Meltdown

It boggles my mind that few reporters see a big story here, about the decline of America's largest university and the larger College Meltdown. We're talking about a school whose promise in the 1970s was to further democratize education. But it... —  read more

Everyone has seen the FY 2017 numbers...a loss of about $52 million, with losses in every segment except Arizona, and that was a very slim margin. What are the FY 2018 numbers and what are the projected FY 2019 numbers? It's hard to believe that it's... —  read more

Over paid

Honestly... Did none of you see this coming? A quick search shows you that enrollment / admission pays between 39k and 50k industry wide. There are people making TWICE that at UOP. Are they putting in TWICE the students?

What’s happening?

Is it just me? Seems like this board has devolved to Camden posting random things, unfounded rumors, or vague insinuations but nothing that really is meaningful. Nothing better to do than try to stir the pot in any way he can think of?
