I attended the University of the Rockies from 2005-2010. This institution has consistently been mismanaged and poorly run. Several students were negatively impacted during my time at the University of the Rockies because the school was so poorly managed. In my case, I was not able to complete my degree due to several changes in my dissertation chair, as professors retired, quit and were fired. UoR hired multiple graduates of their PsyD. program to be professors in the same program. This demonstrates their lack of commitment to hiring experienced professors. Other recent graduates were hired into administrative positions, lacking the insights of professionals in higher education administration. Many students attended on the promise that the PsyD. program would become APA accredited… thus far it has not. The University’s failure to attain APA accreditation is demonstrative of their lack of a cohesive, functioning administration. UoR even hired an expert to advise them on their application to the APA, the expert advised them to withdraw their self-study as it was so poorly constructed and lacked sufficient data. Further, for several years, the administration of UoR claimed that it was possible to attend the program and work full time. This has proven to be nearly impossible. Classes are offered on the weekend, but practicum, internship and dissertation all require full-time involvement. Due to this requirement, most of the students I saw successfully complete the program were unemployed and were dependent on a spouse or other person for financial support. This fact, combined with the high cost of tuition at the institution results in a very homogeneous student population seriously limiting the diversity of the student body. Not only would I not recommend this institution to anyone else, I think it should be investigated for fraud. .
