Message from the CEO

A message to veterans, active duty servicemembers, and their families at University of Phoenix

We are honored to serve you, the thousands of veterans, active duty servicemembers and military family members who choose to pursue an education at University of Phoenix. We recognize and honor the unique sacrifices you have made for this country and are dedicated to providing you with the educational opportunities you need to advance in your career.

From time to time, policymakers and members of the media may share opinions of you and the decisions you make as you pursue your education. They might challenge whether this institution is the right place for you, and if we truly are supporting you effectively. I want you to know that every single employee and faculty member at University of Phoenix is fully dedicated to your success. What’s more, we are committed to supporting your education in a manner that promotes transparency, giving you full visibility into our processes and standards for accountability.

As with all of our learners, we understand that our military students seek to acquire skills and knowledge that translate into a meaningful career path, whether in the service or in civilian life. We strive to achieve this by leveraging our educational offerings and career enhancement tools to help you move forward through a variety of pathways. As we continue building connections between education and careers, we support our students through direct insights from our employer and industry partners, innovations in technology and advancing career readiness tools.

In addition to our ongoing progress and commitment to your career readiness, we’ve recently introduced several other large-scale initiatives to support your educational journey. In the past year we have added new certificate programs, expanded our adaptive learning system and rolled out a new learning platform—and we’re not stopping there. Our continued commitment to our students drives us forward everyday.

We appreciate your choice to attend University of Phoenix. Our goal is to provide you with an unparalleled educational experience and we are always available and open to your thoughts and questions; please don’t hesitate to email us at
