Worldwide Campus Gains Contract for Military Education in South Korea, Japan

A Department of Defense contract allows for more campuses in the Pacific.

Embry-Riddle’s Worldwide Campus started offering face-to-face aviation degree programs to members of the U.S. military stationed at overseas Pacific locations in August, with authorization from a Department of Defense contract.

The contract allows Embry-Riddle to provide undergraduate and graduate degree programs to service members and civilians on U.S. military installations within the Pacific Command’s overseas locations.

Bob Walton, executive director of campus operations for Embry-Riddle’s Worldwide Campus, says, “This new award helps us expand our global reach by offering degree programs to the thousands of personnel assigned to this region. Embry-Riddle Worldwide is proud of its partnership with the Department of Defense and looks forward to continued opportunities to serve the troops at home and abroad.”

Embry-Riddle has served the U.S. military in Europe since 1974 and in the Middle East since 2008. In August, the university opened Worldwide campuses at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa and Camp Humphreys in South Korea.
