September 22, 2016 – Cypress, CA – Trident University International’s (Trident) Outreach & Partnerships team is excited to announce a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Headquarters, United States Army Garrison in Fort Irwin, CA.
Driven by its desire to enhance the student experience, Trident will offer supplemental instruction on post – the University’s first ever arrangement of this kind. Starting later this year, these academic services will be available to all Trident students stationed at Fort Irwin.
The Fort Irwin National Training Center is a major training base for the military, located in northern San Bernardino County. This facility prepares brigade combat teams and other units for action while serving the needs of soldiers, civilians, and family members.
This MOU applies to Fort Irwin military service members, Department of Defense civilian employees, military retirees, and their immediate families.
