University of Phoenix’s Florida campuses, including the one in Orlando, are partnering with the March of Dimes Florida chapter on fundraising and volunteer efforts to support the nonprofit organization and its March for Babies events.
Also in partnership with the March of Dimes, the University of Phoenix is offering four full-tuition scholarships — one at each of the four Florida campuses — for students pursuing either a bachelor of science in nursing or a master of science in nursing, according to a University of Phoenix release.
University of Phoenix Florida campuses have participated in the March for Babies events across the state for the past three years, raising more than $145,000 to benefit babies in the state.
“Many of our staff members and students have benefited from the March of Dimes organization, and we are glad to support such a worthy cause,” said Lynn Mulherin, University of Phoenix’s Southeast regional vice president.
The March of Dimes is a nonprofit organization advocating for pregnancy and baby health and has chapters nationwide.
University of Phoenix opened its first Florida campus in Orlando and has expanded to include 16 locations statewide, including its four main Florida campuses and affiliated learning and resource centers. University of Phoenix-Florida currently serves 23,000 students, including those who are enrolled in on-campus, online and Axia College programs. The state’s four main campuses are in Central Florida, North Florida, South Florida and West Florida.
