Thread regarding DeVry Inc. layoffs


DeVry Staff and Faculty Deadpool Through December '17

Post your predictions for who's getting downloadbesttorrentblog.ru next. INITIALS ONLY, region/group, then why you think so. Not who you think SHOULD be laid off, but a guess about who is ACTUALLY next to go. Winners receive one week pay for each year of service with the organization but must sign a non-disclosure agreement and complete an exit interview with their direct supervisor.

Fictional Example: SW, Carolina campus, always late to work.

Read more carefully, Ms. "Ivy". In large capital letters the OP wrote that the predictions were for who was going to get cut, in actuality, right or wrong, for whatever reasons, and not who should be cut. Your claim is a bit spurious since no one matching your supposed credentials currently appears in the DVU catalog, but you may in fact be one of those who has already passed on from the company. Also, your opening sentence fragment raises additional doubts.

It was just as rigorous as my master's program, if not more so.

A doctorate just as hard as your master's? Really? A real doctorate is a brutal, soul-crushing nightmare. It can last a decade or more. It's a hazing, an initiation, endless rounds of revisions of drafts culminating in a public brutalization of your life's academic work until you push past the point where hate yourself, your work, your advisor, your subject, and your life choices. It's designed to break you down and rebuild your character. A master's degree should be a walk in the park by comparison, even one of the longer professional ones . A three-year cohort-based online doctorate where you show up for three weeks all together in a different just really isn't the same thing as a top-tier research doctorate.

This isn't to cast aspersions on your achievement, of course. You did the work, completed the degree. You've earned the title. You should be proud. But now you've seen what for-profit graduates of any level are facing--questions of authenticity and rigor. Educational experiences exist in a hierarchy, with the Ivies at the top, then the pseudo-Ivies, Tier-Ones, other selective schools, and then down through State Colleges to Community Colleges and For-Profits, before getting to unaccredited schools and finally down to outright diploma mills. If I had known the difference decades ago when I had first joined the academy, I would have worked elsewhere. My degrees are all regionally accredited but now my work history with this particular for-profit has contaminated my career.

To the person who posted that those faculty who have degrees from for-profit colleges should be cut. I'm not in the habit of defending my degree, but now I am fed up with comments like this one. I received my MS from an Ivy league university. It was a difficult program, and I did well. I decided to attend a for-profit university for my doctorate. This was a difficult decision, but I chose it so that I could attend part-time and raise my children as a single mother. It was just as rigorous as my master's program, if not more so. I value my degree, and I only wish people like you would refrain from gross generalizations that only come from ignorance and elitism.

I don't even understand how Folsom keeps avoiding the cut list. Moving there from Elk Grove was one of the dumbest business decisions of all time. They went from over 1000 active students to probably less than a hundred now. The campus staff was cut from the thirties to less than 15. Nobody from Folsom wants or needs to attend a sh-- school like DeVry, and it's too far from Sac to attract their usual demographic in any significant number.

My pick: faculty with for-profit doctorates like Walden, Capella, Phoenix, or the semi-sketchy "Nova Southeastern"....not sure about that one?

I'm not shaving the sides of my head or dancing Gangnam style. Let's blame Alan Alda for all of this.

Absolutely! Why would we need an actual headquarters if some other company is going to run us?

They definitely seem to be setting themselves up to be sold. Chamberlain nursing gen-ed courses being taken over by them (presumably so they can keep the program going once DeVry is sold off). Now, DVU headquarters being moved out of Adtalem headquarters to a campus (again to divest the team from the rest of the company when sold). Also, shared operations now being moved into DVU. Seems like an imminent sale.

, I heard that some Korean organization has been looking into buying us, but I have not heard anything about a time frame. I guess the rumors could be related.

There is a rumor from the home office that DeVry will be sold by the end of the year. Has anyone else heard this?

what about the provost guy? the only achievement of his was when he laid off the training team for canvas in the middle of the training and the full-time faculty were then co-opted to oversee the training in the name of their "ipp"
