A Message from Our Chairman To the Triton College Community: With the November election fast approaching, I hope you will take the time to exercise one of our most important and valuable rights: the right to vote. In a free democratic society, the right to vote is obviously crucial. Please be sure your voice is heard on Election Day by voting for the candidates of your choice. I hope to see you at the Triton College Foundation President’s Reception on Nov. 14. Besides being a fun evening, it’s a great way to support Triton College and our students. At the reception, we’ll be recognizing Mr. David King, who has served the college for many years as the Foundation Board President. Dave’s commitment to Triton College has resulted in the generation of funds for scholarships and programs at Triton College. You will find more information in this newsletter on how you can participate in this enjoyable and worthwhile event. The college’s next accreditation visit by the Higher Learning Commission will be in October of 2013. To prepare for this, the college is in the midst of a self-assessment that is being accomplished collaboratively and with the mindset of analyzing the great things we do to help our students succeed and the things we need to do even better. And while times change, requiring our direction, methods, and strategies to change too, our overall goal remains the same – being the community college you need Triton College to be. I hope you enjoy this issue of Page One; it contains many stories of student success and programs and initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to serving our community, which is what we at Triton are all about. I look forward to hearing from you about how Triton College can serve you. If you have any ideas for celebrating our year-long 50th Anniversary in 2014-2015, let me know. Please feel free to contact me via the Triton College Office of the President at 708-456-0300, Ext. 3201 or e-mail Best regards, Mark R.
