Career Education Corporation (CEC), is a postsecondary education provider with campus-based and online curricula. Its headquarters are in Schaumburg, Illinois.[2]

The organization operates over eighty campuses with approximately 77,600 students enrolled. Schools owned by CEC are located throughout the US, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom and offer doctoral, master’s, bachelor’s, and associate’s degrees, as well as diploma and certificate programs.

CEC schools include the following:

History

CEC was founded in 1994 by John M. Larson[3] who served as the company’s president, CEO and was a member of the board of directors until 2006. Under his leadership, CEC grew to include over 24 US campuses. In 2009, CEC purchased the Le Cordon Bleu schools[4] in the US and on July 1, 2003, Career Education Corporation merged with competitor Whitman Education Group, Inc., gaining control over the latter’s Sanford-Brown Colleges, Ultrasound Diagnostic Schools (now known as the Sanford-Brown Institute), and Colorado Technical University. And also the former Western School of Health and Business.[5]

In March 2007, Gary McCullough joined the company[6] and served as CEO until November 2011, when Steven H. Lesnik assumed the role of president and CEO. Lesnik is the former chairman of the Illinois State Board of Education.[7]

Controversies and federal scrutiny

CEC was investigated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission[8] for various issues of non-compliance in 2005. In January 2008, CEC reported that the SEC has closed its investigation and will take no action against the company.[9][10][11] A Department of Justice investigation began in 1994[12] and was terminated in April 2007, with the DOJ declining prosecution. Another investigation on a different matter was begun by the Civil Division of the DOJ in June 2006 and is currently ongoing.[13]

In June 2005, the U.S. Department of Education prohibited CEC from expanding until it had resolved issues with financial statements and program reviews connected with Collins College and Brooks College two CEC schools.[14] In January 2007, the U.S. Department of Education lifted its restrictions on the company opening new schools or acquiring existing ones.[15]

CEC’s division, American InterContinental University, was placed on probation in December 2005 with its accrediting agency, SACS.[16] The probation status was reviewed after one year, in December 2006, and extended an additional 12 months.[17] On December 11, 2007, CEC announced that SACS has removed AIU’s probation and that the university’s accreditation remains in good standing.[18]

Brooks College, a CEC owned school, was the subject of an unfavorable examination of for-profit trade schools in the CBS news magazine 60 Minutes which focused on alleged misrepresentations by admission representatives to prospective students. A CBS producer with a hidden camera visited several CEC schools in the New York area, including the Katharine Gibbs School.[19] In June 2007, Career Education Corporation announced that it will close both campuses of Brooks College.[20]

In January 2007, the New York State Education Department reported deficiencies at the Katharine Gibbs School‘s New York campus. The problems related to faculty qualifications and remedial course offerings. Career Education has since closed Katharine Gibbs School‘s New York campus.[21]

California Culinary Academy, which was purchased by CEC in 1999, was the subject of an unfavorable article in the San Francisco Weekly focusing on misrepresentations and omissions made to prospective students to enroll them in the school.[22] According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, a lawsuit was filed over the matter.[23]

On November 1, 2011 CEC’s Chief Executive Officer resigned as corporate profits significantly fell and allegations were made involving inflated student placement statistics. Over the year the stock value dropped about 48%.[24] Steve Lesnik was appointed by the Board of Directors to serve as the new CEO. Steve is also a visiting lecturer at Northwestern University and a Director of the Illinois Math & Science Academy Foundation.[25] During this period system wide enrollment also dropped 24%. Several lawsuits were filed by investors who claimed they were defrauded. CEO Gary McCullough was paid nearly $9.8 million in 2011.[26]

  • Give more money to the Judicial Council for Court Construction? Have we gone mad in Sacramento? 2019/09/06
    Below is a judicial branch synopsis from a legislative analysis of infrastructure needs for the state. I think it is prudent to point out that the judicial council only feigns adhesion to fraud, waste and abuse laws and actually worked aggressively to weaken the laws pertaining to judicial branch whistleblowers. They did this by creating […]

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
