Community College Center of Excellence

You lay the groundwork for higher education. Let us build on it.

You give students the skills they need to become lifelong learners. Now, join with us to drive your students’ success and prepare them for the workforce.

Through our Community College Center of Excellence (CCCE), University of Phoenix partners with community colleges, like yours, all over the country to smooth students’ transition into our bachelor’s degree programs. These pathways, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, increase the likelihood that a student will successfully graduate.

Once enrolled at University of Phoenix, students will discover industry-focused curricula and experienced faculty members who work in the fields they teach. Together with our smaller classes, which enable instructors to provide personalized attention, it’s the perfect combination to position students to become the leaders of tomorrow.

We offer many resources to connect students with careers. Our Pathways Leadership Roundtable joins University of Phoenix with community colleges and industry partners to identify workforce needs. We then collaborate to help create pathways for students to gain the knowledge and skills required to address those needs. The Industry Pathways Expo shows community college students what it takes to enter their chosen fields.

These programs create opportunities for students and alliance companies alike:
