DeVry Education Group (NYSE:DV), a global provider of educational services, today announced that Robert Paul will succeed David J. Pauldine as president of DeVry University effective July 1, 2014. The DeVry University board of trustees in conjunction with the DeVry Group board of directors began an exhaustive internal and external search following Pauldine’s announcement last November that he intended to retire. Paul is currently president of Carrington College California, a part of DeVry Education Group. Prior to that, Paul served as vice president of metro operations at DeVry University.

“Rob is a proven leader having successfully led Carrington through its ongoing turnaround. Given his in–depth knowledge of the operations at DeVry University, he is the perfect choice to succeed Dave,” said Richard Rodriguez, chairman of the board of trustees of DeVry University. “We would like to thank Dave for his many years of dedicated service to the students of DeVry University and will wish him well once he retires. Until then, we look forward to working closely with him as he helps Rob transition into his new role.”

Pauldine will remain with DeVry Group through September to ensure a smooth transition of leadership. The governing board of Carrington College California plans to conduct an internal and external search for Paul’s successor. Contact Constantine Alexandrakis at for more information.
