DeVry University Releases Academic Annual Report

DeVry University released today its Academic Annual Report, an overview of its academic initiatives and progress for the 2011-2012 academic year. The report provides a transparent overview of the university’s academic quality measures, highlighting student enrollment and demographics as well as ongoing and new opportunities for improvement. The 2011-2012 report outlines how DeVry University is recommending institution-wide programs and success-tracking measures to help increase graduation rates. It also outlines eight new plans and 10 updates from previous reports.

“We are committed to measuring our results, implementing new ideas and documenting our improvements over time,” said David J. Pauldine, president of DeVry University. “This will ensure that we are always providing our students with outstanding academics and student service.”

Academic Quality

Continuous improvement of academic quality is among DeVry University’s top strategic priorities. “Project Everest” is the academic-led initiative designed to help students succeed throughout their academic journey. Recommendations include simplifying the admissions process, customizing student interventions and helping students choose the right academic track. Additionally, DeVry University will strengthen transitional-studies programs and create an honors program. The university will measure success by tracking student persistence and graduation rates over time.

Scholarships and Grants

In 2011-2012, DeVry University funded 40 scholarship and grant programs, totaling more than $38 million in annual awards and benefiting more than 26,000 students. Since the university recognizes the financial responsibility many students take on to pursue their education, the Student Finance team informs them about their educational progress and borrowing limits to manage debt responsibly.

Full-Time Faculty

Beyond student, career and financial services, the university continuously works to strengthen its faculty. “DeVry University has a long history of offering students the benefit of studying with part-time faculty members who are talented practitioners in their fields of expertise. We believe it is important that we continue to develop a strong core of full-time, highly credentialed faculty; having more full-time faculty on staff will improve our student outcomes by boosting the amount and quality of faculty time and attention available to students,” said Dr. Donna Loraine, provost and vice president of academic affairs.
