Cypress, CA, November 3, 2011 – Trident University International (TUI), a leader in online education, is pleased to announce the formation of the TUI Student Veterans of America (SVA) Chapter. Student Veterans of America is a national organization that aims to provide military veterans with resources, support and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and post graduation.
TUI is the first fully online university with an active SVA chapter. Organized by veterans, the TUI chapter will serve as a virtual social environment in which other veterans and their supporters can come together in a united effort of mutual support.
“Student veterans face challenges beyond achieving their higher educational goals, such as transitioning to the civilian workforce and creating value from their military experiences,” says Richard Seslar, Interim TUI SVA President and current MBA student. “It is my hope that through the TUI SVA we can overcome the obstacles student veterans face by providing an atmosphere of mentorship and support.”
“The TUI SVA enhances veteran’s social and educational experience while attending TUI,” says Nolan Miura who is on the Board of Managers fro Trident University International. “We pride ourselves on helping active-duty and reserve U.S. military personnel achieve their higher education and career goals. The SVA chapter furthers this commitment to all our military veteran students.”
