NAU cuts programs, plans layoffs


National American University, the Rapid City-based for-profit college, has announced it will no longer be accepting new students in a quarter of its academic programs and that it plans to lay off employees as part of a company-wide mission to regain profitability.

“In alignment with its new strategic plan, National American University suspended new student enrollment in 34 of its 128 programs effective November 1, 2018,” the company said in a statement emailed to the Journal by CEO Ronald Shape.

Noting that NAU will continue serving students already enrolled in those programs, the statement concluded by saying, “To accelerate its strategic shift to online academic programs and to gain greater efficiencies through the centralization of its student-facing services, the Company is implementing appropriate staff reductions and other personnel actions.”
