DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. -- February 14, 2013

DeVry (NYSE: DV), a global provider of educational services, has been honored
by the Illinois Committee for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve
(ESGR), an agency of the Department of Defense, with an Above and Beyond Award
in recognition of its support of employee service in the National Guard and

“The Above and Beyond Award recognizes organizations that provide outstanding
support and cooperation to their employees who have answered their nation’s
call to serve in uniform in the National Guard and Reserve,” said Michael
Ayers, Ph.D., Illinois ESGR state chair. “Supportive employers are critically
important to maintaining the strength and readiness of the National Guard and

“DeVry joins thousands of employers that demonstrate their support of service
in the National Guard and Reserve by going above and beyond statutory
requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act
(USERRA),” Ayers said.

The award is presented each year to a limited number of Illinois organizations
that go beyond granting leave for military duty to their National Guard and
Reserve employees. DeVry offers an array of programs and support services for
employees in the military and their families, including pay supplement and
continuation of benefits during active duty time.

“DeVry has a distinguished history of serving the military and Veterans dating
back to World War II when we educated U.S. Army Air Corps instructors on
electronic devices,” said Daniel Hamburger, DeVry president and chief
executive officer. “That service commitment continues today through support of
our colleagues who have served and the student Veterans we educate.”

DeVry University national director of military affairs, Jenell Givelber,
accepted the award on behalf of DeVry at the Illinois ESGR Annual Employer
Awards Ceremony in Lombard, Ill., in January.

“As a Major in the U.S. Army Reserve, I know firsthand the importance of
having your employer’s support during active duty time, and afterwards, too,”
Givelber said. “Signing the ESGR Statement of Support is a public declaration
of something we have been working towards all along, ‘doing well by doing
good’ – it’s the motto we live by at DeVry.”
