To the employees of DCEH:

Welcome to Dream Center Education Holdings!

My team and I are extremely honored to be joining all of you as we transform the schools of DCEH into a world-class educational institution! Today is the start of a new beginning. There are many challenges ahead of us that we will face together.

In the coming weeks and months, we will be visiting all of our schools. I am excited to meet each of you personally. We are interested in listening to your thoughts and ideas on how to improve our schools and student experience. We believe that the faculty and staff of DCEH will form the foundation for an institution with integrity. By caring for each other, our students, and our community, we can begin this positive transformation.

We are rounding out our leadership team and look forward to introducing them to you in the near future.

Brent Richardson

Well Chicago maybe since the campus president keep blinders on maybe the Dream Center will detect the low moral because of the two bats over admissions and financial aid! They are God awful disrespectful to all staff and especially the financial aid director is highly unethical and don’t do a ounce of work but gossip all day about the students and staff. A controll freak at best. Every last person has left because of her! You can’t go to HR cause their friends. Poorly ran school and could careless about students and their best interests. Each event including open houses is terrible because there is never no plan and things happen at the last minute. Poor communication and NO consistency! NSRs is a complete waste of everyone’s time and is for twiddle Dee and Twidle dumb to beat you down and tell you all the things you don’t do wrong. Whoever came up with that practice is freaking stupid.

Anything would be better than the management at EDMC. Such a good ole boy network. They need to talk to the people that do the work.

But my e-meter says this guy is good. He wouldn't use me for his personal gain. He abides by the laws of honesty.

When Richardson took over GCU, he did an interview in 2009. This is what he said he did to upgrade GCU. "Over the next year I replaced a lot of people at the university, and I also found that some talent that was better utilized in a different way, in different positions. We had to clean it out, which did involve firing a lot of people. It took three years to change the culture and arrive at the point where I wanted to be."

All I can say is don't forget where this guy came from. Past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. This man was a for profit leader, a businessman and a millionaire. I see more people gaining admittance who aren't prepared for college level work, more drop outs, more defaults, more losses of federal revenue, and this man and co. Taking huge salaries.

Don't kid yourself. The status quo can not stand. Richardson is just another smooth talking operator with a bible in one hand and a slash and burn plan going forward. It goes without saying but desperation clouds the senses that necessary reality will always trump magical thinking. The structure of this mess has necessitated EDMC's fire sale. To expect business as usual is unrealistic for several reasons including a rapidly diminishing student demographic, bloated infastructure and impossible to justify head count. Let's face it, DCEH is interested in making money above all and it is in the best interests of Brently & Company to have an orderly dismantlement of all so-called platforms that have become untenable to sustain. This means that South and Argosy will no doubt survive the holocaust as these have always offered programs that provide real world jobs although at a ridiculous tuition cost. This fact is just another reason for many present employees to find another gig. Again, things will change as they must and it always happens to the other guy but remain in dreamworld if you must but

expect a rude awakening soon enough.

Some campuses are left with less than one full time faculty per major... Some are struggling to find qualified Chefs to teach because of the dumb a-- rule of the 10 segments per year, gives professional no incentive to leave the industry to come teach in a serious way...

Real "world class" education is established when faculty actually care for the campus and are invested in it, not when you try to fill holes with burned out teachers that need to make a buck so they pick up a class here and there... No pay raise since 2009 for many, another blow to the morale of very many decent teachers. This DCFH hopefully won't be another operation of the Joel Osteen type where the church leadership line its pockets and everyone else still waits for trickle done economics to work.

I hope we get an early holiday layoff. I can use some extra time off. Changes have to be coming soon

The school is not gone.

by | Post ID:

definitely worth talking to your lender about that

by | Post ID:

What about us who have a degree already and now school is gone? What's happening?

by | Post ID:

I think the positive is student loan forgiveness for employees . Look into this

by | Post ID:

Are we still offering college degrees? When are layoffs coming?

by | Post ID:

Like I said... hey look-aid

by | Post ID:

So many of us this this is such a great thing. It's bringing job security we no longer have to worry.

Is this mail for real?

by | Post ID:

Hey KOOL-AID!

That is almost identical to the email Dave Hann sent out to all the remaining CCi employees exactly 80 days before he terminated 40% of the employees. Good luck but don't get too excited because 4 out 10 of you will be unemployed by February 2018.

Brent,

Good luck with EDMC 2.0

As a prayer warrior myself, I will pray for the future victims.

The shape-shifter himself couldn't have done a better job.
