Mission StatementUniversity Learning Goals University of Phoenix is dedicated to serving the educational needs of working professionals and their employers. Its innovative adult learning model makes higher education more accessible, efficient and relevant to the real world and recognizes the difference between younger students without experience and working professionals with practical knowledge. Research indicates that adult learners are more likely than their younger counterparts to bring to the classroom organizational and personal experiences that enrich learning and help them process and integrate new knowledge. Additionally, their more complex life roles and responsibilities mean that adults usually have less time and fewer resources to devote to education. The result is that adults expect educational experiences that are focused, challenging and as immediately relevant as they are theoretical. The University therefore maintains small classes (both online and on campus) in order to preserve a highly interactive and personally relevant learning experience, contributing to an atmosphere of knowledge sharing.
