Thread regarding DeVry Inc. layoffs

This is what our students are going through

I am a student at Keller in Jacksonville. Since enrolling in late 2015, I have seen onsite class sizes drop from 8-12 students to just two or three. That is, if there is a class onsite. Some terms there are only one or two classes onsite and they keep repeating the same courses. I suppose this is due to robo-scheduling. Our campus dean-of-the-month, five in the last two years, seems powerless in scheduling the courses students are asking for. Our skeletal staff, now down to four people, maybe, is a revolving door. There are only two that have been there over two years. Our "campus" consists of only two or three classrooms on the 2nd floor of a four-story building. Every term Chamberlain claims more territory. Our library has had all books removed over a year ago, there hasn't been any onsite tutors for over a year, and the place is a ghost town at night. A lone security guard mans the front desk.

With the latest revision to the Keller Catalog, many courses have been eliminated, yet they are still scheduled to be taught online in January, March, and May. Entire MBA programs have been deleted or had nearly all of the core courses changed. It also seems the Project Management Certificate is no longer accredited by PMI. I don't think Devry, as it is now, can survive another year. I don't see Cogswell doing anything positive since they haven't even commented on the acquisition (that I have seen). I suppose my degree will become worthless more sooner than later.

you must be new. The people who care, or did care, at headquarters? They have long been silenced. Nobody who cares is in power. And now that the transfer of DVU/Keller has been announced, along with the "YOU and YOU are going with DVU, while YOU are going to stay" the colleagues care even less. The folks on both sides of the lines are just trying to GTFO, and students like OP are left to hang.

It is left as an exercise for the reader what our student experience really means/has mattered for the last 36 months.

Have you tried contacting headquarters and speaking with the student resources people? They would certainly want to hear your concerns this includes voicing your concerns to the decision-makers. You should point out to them your are following the prescribed procedures for filing a complaint.
