University of the Rockies (UoR) is a graduate school located in a former train station in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Unlike most schools, which are administrated by a non-profit board of directors, UoR is administrated by Bridgepoint Education, Inc., a for-profit San Diego-based company which runs a handful of select colleges and universities around the United States.
The university was first founded as the Colorado School of Professional Psychology in 1998, then changed to its current name in 2007. Today, UoR serves more than 80,000 students worldwide, with a campus enrollment of around 135.
The mission of UoR is “to provide high-quality, accessible learning opportunities globally for diverse groups of individuals seeking preparation for life goals, professional practice, service, and distinguished leadership”. To this end UoR also runs its own press, the University of the Rockies Press. The press publishes texts on business, organizational leadership, clinical psychology, religion and spirituality, and health.
