We ally with professional organizations in the fields where minorities are underrepresented to promote diversity in the workplace.
Student diversity at University of Phoenix
University of Phoenix not only recognizes and embraces the diversity of its students, staff and faculty — we strive to maintain it. Throughout our history, we’ve worked to provide underserved populations with access to higher education.
The University has also continued to partner with nonprofit organizations within the Native American, Hispanic and African-American communities to provide additional resources and support.
