Happy 2017 Trident Community!
We hope you had a wonderful holiday season. We are particularly grateful for those of you that weren’t able to be home because you were serving our country.
For so many of us, New Year’s resolutions quickly fade as we fall back into our old patterns. From experience, I’ve learned that before committing to a resolution or goal, it is important to ask myself the following questions:
News and Highlights from 2016
Dr. Qin Sun’s paper titled “Can Online Interactive Learning Tool Promote Student Learning Effectiveness? An Empirical Exploration” was recently accepted for presentation at the Marketing EDGE Direct/Interactive Marketing Research Summit in Los Angeles, CA, to be held October 15-16, 2016. Paper co-authors are Dr. Yann Abdourazakou and Dr. Thomas Norman. Dr. Sun also recently had the article titled “Country Resources, Institutions, Image and Exports: Country Branding Implications” accepted by Journal of Global Marketing.
Dr. Indira Guzman attended the ACM SIGMIS Computers and People Research conference in June. Held in Alexandria, VA, the conference featured poster presentations from student Elston Steele and the now-graduated Dr. Angie Cox. Both individuals represented Trident’s Ph.D. in Business Administration program.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) acknowledged that Trident’s Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Management and Master of Science in Human Resource Management fully aligns with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates. A total of 411 programs in 309 educational institutions worldwide have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guidelines and templates. Overseeing this project were Dr. Debra Louis, Dr. Belal Kaifi, Dr. Stefan Hanson, and Dr. Peggy Swigart.
Trident alumnus Dr. Peter Mangles authored a paper entitled “Perceived Isolation, Its Impact on Professional Deviance and Deviant Workplace Behaviors,” which was accepted for presentation at the Academy of Management (AOM) Conference in Anaheim, CA. Due to Dr. Mangles having to return to his native Australia, the paper was presented on August 7th by Dr. Indira Guzman. In addition, Dr. Guzman attended two workshops covering the future of doctoral education at business schools and professional doctorates.
Dr. Bruce Gillies, professor in the GRJ-COB, recently published the book The 21st Century Career Search System. Currently available on Amazon, the book gives advice on career development for all levels of professionals. Dr. Gillies is an Industrial and Organizational Psychologist and a veteran of the United States Navy. Since the book’s release he has presented two webinars on this subject matter for Trident’s Center for Career Planning and Workforce Strategies. A third webinar is slated for later this year..
A Little History
Touro University International > TUI > Trident University International
TUI was established in July 1998 by Dr. Yoram Neumann. The first headquarters was opened and put into operation in Los Alamitos, California. TUI began as Touro University International, a branch campus of Touro College, a New York non-profit educational corporation. In January 2011, TUI announced, “TUI" is now Trident University International.
In February 2005, Trident became accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). Trident's outstanding reputation as one of the top online universities along with its WSCUC accreditation makes Trident the best choice for thousands of students around the world.
Trident is a U.S. based, globally available leader in online education. Students choose Trident University because it has been well respected and admired by students, faculty, staff, and employers throughout its history. In 2006, Trident celebrated with a new IT system upgrade to support 20,000 students and 1,000 faculty members.
In early 2015, Trident announced the new Fastrac session structure; a shortened 8-week academic session instead of 12-weeks.
