Description

Description: 

DeVry University is a division of DeVry Education Group,[1] a for-profit higher education organization that is also the parent organization for Keller Graduate School of Management, Ross University School of Medicine, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, American University of the Caribbean, Carrington College, Chamberlain College of Nursing, Becker Professional Review, and DeVry Brasil.[2] The school was founded in 1931 as DeForest Training School, and officially became DeVry University in 2002.[3]

DeVry Education Group is headquartered in Downers Grove, Illinois, and Daniel Hamburger is the company's CEO.[4] DeVry University is regionally accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.[2]

As a for-profit school, Devry has faced increasing scrutiny and criticism from the US government, state Attorneys General in Illinois and Massachusetts, the Pew Foundation, and the Mississippi Center for Justice (representing former students).[5][6][7][8][9]

In 2014, DeVry had over 60,000 students across 90 campuses throughout North America and over the internet. Total US enrollment numbers, however, have declined.[10] Since 2014, DeVry University has closed 15 campus locations and downsized 13 other campuses. More US site closures and space reductions are planned.[11] Globally, however, Devry is opening two additional schools in Brazil.[12]
