Career Education Corporation (NASDAQ:CECO) announced today that it is uniting the educational mission of International Academy of Design and Technology (IADT), Brown College and Sanford-Brown to create comprehensive career schools under the Sanford-Brown name.
Bringing these career-focused schools together expands the Sanford-Brown educational mission, allowing the schools to provide more comprehensive programs and resources to students at 18 campuses across the country.
“Each of these schools brings a dynamic set of educational offerings and student services that are focused on helping students succeed,” said Scott W. Steffey, President and CEO of Career Education. “Joining IADT and Brown College under the Sanford-Brown name combines the strengths of these schools together to offer a broader array of programs and resources to help our students reach their educational goals.”
The new Sanford-Brown will include four newly-created schools of study that will allow for greater focus on individual, career-focused disciplines. The School of Health, the IADT School of Design, the School of Technology and the School of Business will form the foundation of the new Sanford-Brown. In time, campuses that currently focus on a single area of study may grow to include other areas of study by adding some or all of these disciplines. These new schools of study will also allow campuses to offer programs that better cater to the needs of prospective students and employers in the local market.
IADT campuses in Las Vegas, Orlando and Seattle will be renamed Sanford-Brown College, as will Brown College in Brooklyn Center and Mendota Heights, Minn. IADT in San Antonio is housed in the same building with Sanford-Brown College, and IADT in Tampa is located near the Sanford-Brown campus there. In these two cities, the two schools will come together under the Sanford-Brown College name. IADT Online will become Sanford-Brown Online while existing Sanford-Brown campuses will retain their current name.
“As we make this transition, we remain committed to continuing to provide a dynamic and supportive environment where students can get the support they need for the success they want,” Steffey said.
As IADT and Brown College join the Sanford-Brown network of colleges and institutes, a new logo has been created to reflect the new Sanford-Brown. Featuring four interlocking links, the logo signifies how the interests of student, school, employer and community are interdependent and united. Sanford-Brown succeeds only when we all succeed.

The Sanford-Brown name dates back to 1866 when Rufus C. Crampton, a professor at Illinois College, established a school to meet the growing educational demands of post-Civil War America. Today, more than 18 campuses bear the Sanford-Brown name. Together, these schools share a commitment to career-focused learning and offer degree-granting and non-degree programs that are all grounded in hands-on education and training to empower students in pursuing fulfilling career opportunities. Degree programs vary by campus and area of study across the School of Health, the IADT School of Design, the School of Technology and the School of Business. Sanford-Brown Colleges and Institutes are accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS). Sanford-Brown does not guarantee employment or salary. Sanford-Brown is part of the Career Education Corporation network of schools (NASDAQ: CECO). For more information about the Sanford-Brown schools please visit http://www.sanfordbrown.edu/

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
