A Message from Our CEO
When we founded Bridgepoint Education, we knew we wanted to be an active participant in the community, an organization that gives back. We established numerous philanthropic initiatives that centered on three specific areas: education, youth, and the military. Over the years, we have remained focused on supporting these areas and positively impacting our communities with innovative campaigns, on-going partnerships, and engaged employee volunteerism. We have been able to bring people and organizations together in the name of strengthening the community around us.
Bridgepoint’s efforts in the community would not be as successful without the support of our employees. Throughout our organization, you will find employees who are committed to community involvement. In 2014, our employees donated more than 20,000 hours to volunteer service. Those volunteer efforts included activities such as building bikes for disadvantaged youth with the Salvation Army, cleaning up a local urban park, and donating more than 1,400 toys and sports equipment to children in need.
Our emphasis on corporate social responsibility is a source of pride and we continue to reach for even higher levels of performance. With an eye toward continuing to strengthen our corporate citizenship, I look forward to all that we can accomplish in 2015 and the years to come.
Andrew Clark, CEO
