Franklin Pierce University

Goodyear welcomed its first excellent private institution of post-secondary education to the community in 2008, Franklin Pierce University from New Hampshire. In June 2009, Franklin Pierce began their Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program in Goodyear. Franklin Pierce's Goodyear center also offers a series of online undergraduate and graduate programs.

The presence of this private university represents the culmination of a concerted effort by the Goodyear City Council and staff to bring smaller, private schools of higher education to Goodyear to further enhance our quality of life.
