Coalition Letter to the Illinois Board of Higher Education on DeVry/Cogswell Sale

Organizations representing students and taxpayers in Illinois, California, and nationally sent a letter to the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE) to raise questions regarding the proposed sale of DeVry University and Keller Graduate School of Management programs (DeVry) to Cogswell Education, LLC (Cogswell). The letter raises questions about what entity will manage DeVry’s holdings, ongoing consumer protections for DeVry students, Cogswell’s ability to assume control of DeVry’s holdings, the number of Borrower Defense claims from DeVry students, and the appropriate venue for state oversight following the sale.
