The designation recognizes AllCampus for its mission-driven business and work to make education more affordable and accessible for all students
Chicago (August 22, 2023) –– AllCampus, a leading higher education services provider partnering with top-ranked institutions to make higher education more affordable, accessible and equitable, today announced its certification as a B Corporation™ (B Corp™). The certification reinforces AllCampus’ mission of driving down the cost of and increasing access to education for all students.
“Becoming a B Corp-certified company has been a long-term goal that only 10% of businesses achieve, and I’m immensely proud of our entire organization for working together to finally get there.” said Joe Diamond, CEO of AllCampus. “This is true validation of our work with students and universities to make our mission and vision a reality. I’m looking forward to seeing the value that our organization will continue to provide to our university and employer partners, and most importantly, the students, as a certified B Corporation.”
B Corp Certification, also known as Benefit Corporation Certification, is a designation administered by the nonprofit B Lab and awarded to companies that meet certain standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. This certification enables companies to operate with a heightened focus on creating a positive impact on society and the environment.
The B Corp certification looks at a company’s practices across five categories –– governance, workers, community, environment, and customers –– and conducts a rigorous assessment process that evaluates a company’s overall impact on various stakeholders, including employees, communities, customers, and the environment. In order to receive B Corp certification, companies must score a minimum of 80 points on the assessment. While the average score is 51, AllCampus received an overall score of 89.
“AllCampus has always prioritized social, environmental and community impact, and operating as a responsible and ethical business,” said Heather Shulick, Executive Vice President, Human Resources at AllCampus. “Our certification as a B Corp reinforces our commitment to using our business as a force for good. I’m so proud of each and every one of our employees for their hard work and dedication toward delivering on our mission, and I’m excited about our bright future as a B Corp-certified organization.”
This designations come on the heels of AllCampus announcing its new status as a public benefit limited liability company (PB LLC) in January, underscoring the company’s commitment to generating social and public good by operating responsibly and sustainably –– and furthering its mission of making education more accessible, affordable and equitable.
