DeVry Education Group, based in Downers Grove, recently appointed University of Arizona President Ann Weaver Hart and University of California, Davis, Chancellor Linda Katehi to serve on its board of directors.
“We are very pleased to welcome such accomplished educators to our board,” DeVry Education Group board chair Christopher Begley said. “Dr. Hart and Dr. Katehi have a history of driving strong student outcomes and a personal interest in maintaining access to quality educational programs for nontraditional students.”
Weaver and Katehi have extensive experience leading large, diverse university systems, and their knowledge of nursing, health care and hospital systems is vital to DeVry's focus on these areas.
“I’m honored to be invited to join the board,” Hart said. “DeVry Group represents an important, accessible path for many students seeking advanced medical and technical degrees. I believe my experience and insight into academic excellence and helping a wide diversity of university students achieve their goals will be helpful for their students' career outcomes.”
Katehi, who previously served as vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said she looks forward to participating on DeVry Education Group’s board.
“DeVry Group’s goal to enable a quality learning experience that inspires and educates students to be our next generation of leaders is essential to our nation’s progress,” Katehi said.
