Chief Learning Officer awards

Chief Learning Officer logo

Chief Learning Officer magazine has honored University of Phoenix with the 2013 Silver Excellence in Academic Partnerships, 2012 Silver Excellence in Community Service and 2011 Bronze Excellence in Academic Partnerships Awards.

The University’s mission is to improve access to higher education. By working to remove educational barriers facing children who are at high risk to drop out, and by collaborating with Education Partners to help them develop leaders within their organizations, we are delivering on our promise.


The Silver Excellence in Academic Partnerships Award was presented to University of Phoenix for its partnership with Best Western, which provided access to higher education for Best Western team members without disrupting their ability to operate its hotels. 


The Silver Excellence in Community Service Award was presented to University of Phoenix for its partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. We donated $2.3 million to “Be Great: Graduate,” and we provide volunteers to mentor and educate students who are most at risk to drop out of school.

University of Phoenix also received a Learning in Practice Certificate of Merit for our education partnership with MGM Resorts.
