Office of the President
This is your direct source of information to learn about the University and the ways we’re changing the face of higher education. The sixth president of University of Phoenix, Dr. Bill Pepicello, has a strong belief in opening the doors to education for all and giving back to the world.
Meet Dr. Pepicello
I’m proud to work for a University that makes college accessible to moms and dads, soldiers, nurses, teachers, executives and working professionals. During the University’s 30-year history we’ve expanded our campus locations and improved our distance-learning technologies to allow you, our students, to earn a degree without interfering with your work and personal responsibilities.
It’s critical that all of us in higher education rise to the challenge and continue to improve college accessibility.
What's Happening at the University
Along with education, the University is committed to volunteerism and giving back to the communities it serves. Many faculty and staff members give their time and energy working to make the world a better place. Service is just one of the ways we give back. We also support more than 30 full-tuition Paying It Forward scholarships that give underserved and deserving individuals the opportunity to attend University of Phoenix.
Please also take a moment and read the communications I’ve shared with our community and the articles that have been published about the University in The Chronicle of Higher Education—one of the most well-regarded publications in academia.
If the University is new to you, please take some time to explore and learn what we offer our students. If you already know how important the University is in leading the future of education, be sure to keep checking phoenix.edu for exciting updates, new information and programs, as well as news from the world of higher education.
