Proud Education Partner of the Chicago Blackhawks

Team up with the Hawks to support education

University of Phoenix is the Proud Education Partner of the Chicago Blackhawks. This season, we’re teaming up with the reigning world champions to promote the importance of education by:

  • Inviting Chicagoland residents of all ages to participate in Education Night at the United Center
  • Donating Hawks tickets and classroom resources to outstanding educators
  • Offering scholarship opportunities to Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana residents

Education Night

Education Night was a huge success, with Blackhawks fans donating hundreds of school supplies for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago. The first 10,000 fans through the gate at the United Center received a school binder, too.

This season, we plan to score big again. Please join us on March 30th and help support education throughout our communities.
