A Message from Our CEO
There is a responsibility that comes with being a part of a community. This is true for individuals and it is also true for organizations. Bridgepoint Education is an active part of the communities where we live and work, and we have a responsibility to improve those communities. We have made a concerted effort to form lasting relationships with community partners so that we can harness our collective energies to make a real impact in key areas. Together, we are expanding educational opportunities, we are helping children to thrive, and we are supporting our nation’s service members and their families.
Our employees are at the heart of all our corporate citizenship efforts. I am proud to say that our employees continuously contribute their time and resources to causes that are important to them. In 2015, our employees donated more than $92,000 to various local charities and nearly 19,000 hours to volunteer service. Back in April, hundreds of our employees and students came together for our annual Heroes Volunteer Day, a company-wide service event held simultaneously in San Diego, Denver, and Clinton, Iowa.
Our commitment to philanthropy began when I founded Bridgepoint Education back in 2005 and, because of the passion of our employees and students, it continues to endure. Thank you for supporting us in our efforts to create a better world.
Andrew Clark, CEO
