About University of Phoenix
John Sperling, Ph.D., a Cambridge-educated economist, professor, and entrepreneur, founded the University of Phoenix in 1976 in response to the changing needs of the workplace. It was part of his commitment to providing adults with the higher education they would need to fill those needs and for forty years, thats exactly what weve done.
The times have changed, but our objective has remained the same to help people enhance their lives through education. Together we will keep working to fulfill Dr. Sperlings vision, improve the lives of our students and strengthen our communities.
We are proud to provide students access to quality education, ongoing support, and a range of resources to help them succeed. Through innovation and dedication, we can continue to work toward a better tomorrow.
