DeVry University Releases Academic Annual Report

Stocks in this article: DV

DeVry University released today its Academic Annual Report, an overview of its academic initiatives and progress for the 2012-2013 academic year. The report provides a transparent overview of the university’s academic quality measures, accreditation milestones, graduate employment rates, student enrollment and demographics, as well as new and ongoing opportunities for improvement.

The 2012-2013 report also summarizes DeVry University initiatives such as an Honors Program for high-performing students and offering student assistance through the Academic Support Centers and ASPIRE program, which are aimed at increasing student persistence and graduation rates. In addition, it outlines eight new plans and 11 updates from previous reports.

“We know that many of our students are balancing their education with their personal and professional lives,” said David J. Pauldine, president of DeVry University. “In addition to strong academics, we now provide tailored student-support services to ensure our students have the help they need at every step of their educational journey in order to succeed both academically and in their chosen fields after they graduate.”

Academic Quality Highlights

Continuous improvement remains among DeVry University’s top strategic priorities. Participating in The Higher Learning Commission’s Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) provides the university with additional opportunities to analyze and evaluate the systems used in pursuit of DeVry University’s mission and to identify ways to improve them for maximum effectiveness.

Accreditation Milestones

In March 2013, DeVry University received Reaffirmation of Accreditation by the Institutional Actions Council (IAC) of The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). The IAC reaffirmation continues the accreditation of DeVry University, which includes DeVry College of New York and Keller Graduate School of Management. DeVry University is scheduled for its next reaccreditation review in 2019/2020.

In May 2013, DeVry University was granted initial accreditation of its established business degree programs and separate specialized accreditation for its established accounting degree programs by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP, www.acbsp.org).

In September 2013, the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET ( www.abet.org) reaccredited DeVry University’s onsite bachelor’s degree programs in its College of Engineering & Information Sciences, specifically its Biomedical Engineering Technology, Computer Engineering Technology and Electronics Engineering Technology degree programs at certain locations.

“Achieving new accreditation and re-accreditation milestones not only validates DeVry University’s mission, but also stands as a testament to our integrity and commitment to our students,” said Donna M. Loraine, Ph.D., provost / vice president of academic affairs for DeVry University and dean of its Keller Graduate School of Management. “We expect our performance to grow even stronger as we continue to build our team of highly qualified, full-time faculty members who focus on teaching and advising.”
