In 1976, Dr. John Sperling, a Cambridge-educated economist, saw an opportunity: to create an accredited academic institution that accommodates the lives of busy working adults. Today, University of Phoenix is the largest private University in North America, offering over 20 undergraduate and graduate degree programs — online and locations nationwide.
University of Phoenix is a pioneer of many innovations that serve working students today, including:
Our curriculum focuses on academic and practical development across our five universal teaching platforms:
University of Phoenix provides access to higher education opportunities that enable students to develop knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their professional goals, improve the performance of their organizations, and provide leadership and service to their communities.
Become part of the team that makes University of Phoenix possible.
We provide employees with a positive working environment, a competitive benefits package and the opportunity to contribute to accessible higher education.
It takes a variety of specialists to operate, maintain and innovate everything from information technology to curriculum development for the nation’s largest private university. Software engineers, student services coordinators, marketing professionals and business analysts are all necessary.
Our faculty members must meet rigorous standards. A master’s-level degree or higher is required in addition to practical experience as a working professional in order to teach with us.
In addition to teaching positions, we also employ faculty development administrators, campus college chairs and college deans. And to meet the needs of our students, we employ academic, financial and enrollment representatives, and much more.
I have been working at University of Phoenix part-time (More than 5 years)
Continuous faculty development
Involves faculty in all areas such as course design and new classroom platform
Has formal faculty recognition program
Too many vice presidents and no one knows what they do except praise each other
Appoints faculty to teach courses without experience in content/subject matter
Arrogance sensed by VPs during faculty meetings
Some deans need to go to pasture/outdated thinking/clinging to learning theory not current
Advice to Management
Clean house of great pretenders
Increase the enrollment
Forget being brave, bold, or honest - that's grade school thinking
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ).
The interview process was in front of a panel and against other applicants. The interview process was a "situational/circumstantial" style interview. The interview had the hiring manager, a director, and another manager in the same department.
