Trident University Launches Military Assistance Center

Posted on Thursday 27th August 2015 | Academia M&S

Trident University International (Trident) launched the Trident Military Assistance Center (TMAC) that’s designed to improve the student experience of Trident’s active duty, veteran, dependents and National Guard communities, which currently make up 79 percent of the University’s population.  

Trident, with more than 22,000 Military alumni, recognized a need within the University to provide a centralized resource to support military members throughout the world. By engaging these populations through mentorship and professional development, Trident can help students prepare for their careers in both the military and civilian worlds.

Services offered include career development skills, mentor/protégé programs, tutoring services, health and welfare information access, and financial management resources. Students also have the opportunity to join Trident’s chapter of the Student Veterans of America.

Steven Hall, Trident’s Senior Director of Military and Veterans Relations says the Trident Military Assistance Center offers “access to a wealth of resources and a network of dedicated and experienced individuals. By centralizing these services, we can now better support the needs of Trident’s dedicated military community.”

The Center is expected to serve more than 2,000 students and alumni in its first year, providing a place for those individuals to find information, have questions answered, and find skill development resources, and career support.

Trident is an online post-secondary university that offers degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate levels. It is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Senior College and University Commission. For more information go to www.trident.edu or call 855-290-0290.
