DeVry University Offers Complimentary Professional Development Videos

NAPERVILLE, Ill. – Apr. 1, 2020 – On a 10-point scale of uncertainty, the world seems to be off the charts. This uncertainty is causing an enormous amount of stress and anxiety. In response, DeVry University is offering professional development videos tackling a variety of topics including self care, business communications, and other best practices specific to working in this time of crisis. The series will launch over the next several weeks; the first three videos are currently available to DeVry students, faculty, colleagues and to the general public.
“We know so many people are struggling to balance their work and family priorities while also coping with this global humanitarian and economic crisis,” said Dave Barnett, vice president of Human Resources and University Relations. “We are offering these videos to supplement the access to mental health services we already provide to our students, faculty and colleagues, as well as to share with anyone who might find comfort or inspiration during this time of uncertainty.”
