Kaplan Will Eliminate 770 Positions

December 8, 2010

Kaplan Higher Education announced Tuesday that it is eliminating 770 positions, about 5 percent of its work force. Jeff Conlon, president and CEO of Kaplan Higher Education, said: "Our enrollments have slowed recently, as they have at other proprietary schools. More importantly, we have made a strategic decision to become more selective in the students we enroll, focusing on students who are most likely to thrive in a rigorous academic environment and meet their financial obligations. These factors have led to a shift in our personnel needs."
