In 1973, inspired by an enduring passion to address the unique needs of working learners, Dr. John Sperling manifested his vision and forever altered the landscape of accessibility to adult education. In the 40 plus years since, Apollo Education Group® has been a relentless front-runner in providing access and innovative learning opportunities for more than a million students.

Our work with learners around the world drives our energy and actions every day and being good stewards in our global communities and contributing to the well-being of others is a fundamental part of how we operate. It’s the torch first lit by Dr. Sperling and left to be carried by the more than 25,000 employees of Apollo Education Group and our entities—University of Phoenix®, Apollo Global, Western International University®, Carnegie Learning®, Apollo Lightspeed, and the College for Financial Planning®.

Apollo Education Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives include providing more than $20 million annually in scholarships, in-kind donations, volunteerism, and financial resources.

We invite you to look deeper and read more about the impact of these and our other philanthropic undertakings in our 2014 Corporate Social Responsibility Report.
