We Change the Lives of Our Students, Their Families and Future Generations Through Higher Education
University of Phoenix (UOPX), established in Phoenix, in 1976 by Dr. John Sperling, was founded to provide access to higher education for working learners who wanted to advance their knowledge and achieve their professional goals. Since then it has become one of the largest private, accredited universities in North America, continuing to champion the working learner.
Classes are offered at more than 100 U.S. locations, as well as through online programs available in most countries around the world, including some U.S. military bases. Faculty have real-world experience in the fields they teach that bridges the gap between theory and practice, so students can apply what they learn one day to their job the next.
