DeVry: Closes Monday because of security issue

CHICAGO (AP) — DeVry University says a threatening email prompted the school to close its Chicago-area campuses.

The school announced that it was closing the DeVry campuses and its Chamberlain College of Nursing Locations on Monday because of a "potential security issue."

The school has not elaborated on the email but did say that the decision to close was made after consulting with law enforcement officials. Chicago Police officials say they're investigating an "unspecified threat."

DeVry President David Pauldine tells the Chicago Sun-Times that the email included the sender's address and that law enforcement was trying to verify the address.

DeVry operates campuses in downtown Chicago and near O'Hare International Airport, and has campuses in Naperville, Tinley Park, Gurnee and other suburbs.
