Corporate Social Responsibility

University of Phoenix believes in giving back to our communities and getting involved. Through our Corporate Social Responsibility office within Apollo Education Group, we have exciting opportunities to create advantageous partnerships and relationships while making a tangible impact on our local communities. Helping to ensure healthy, vibrant and prospering communities is good for our employees, their families and our neighbors.

Our commitment

University of Phoenix brings corporate social responsibility to life in impactful ways. Although University of Phoenix is nationwide, we give back to the local communities in which we live, work and play. Our community giving is centered on educational and workplace readiness, employee volunteerism and environmental sustainability.

At University of Phoenix, we view corporate social responsibility as more than a business practice—we consider it part of our culture.
