San Diego-based Bridgepoint Education said Sept. 12 that it has acquired the Colorado School of Professional Psychology located in Colorado Springs, Colo. for an undisclosed amount. The newly renamed University of the Rockies offers highly specialized psychology degrees at the masters and doctorate levels.
According to Bridgepoint, all proceeds from the transaction will go toward the creation of the University of the Rockies Foundation, which will continue to operate the Switzer Counseling Center. The center provides low-cost psychotherapy to individuals in the community who are uninsured or have limited finances.
