I don't precisely understand  
Why are institutions like the University of Phoenix referred to as "for-profit colleges", but private schools like Harvard are not?

Presumably Harvard doesn't have shareholders or owners that can take a profit from it's business. It's some form of nonprofit organization. It has a huge endowment, pays high salaries to lots of employees, but then so do other nonprofits.
