A Message from Our Chairman To the Triton College Community: Autumn is upon us, with cooler weather and the welcome end of many construction projects in Chicagoland. I’m happy to report that Phase I of Triton’s Roadway and Parking Lot Improvement project was completed on time and under budget, and our traffic patterns are now back to normal. You’ll appreciate the difference the next time you drive on campus! We were able to complete this work without going to the taxpayers for additional funding and in spite of a state funding shortfall of more than $100 million since 1998. One of the strengths of Triton College is our mission, which was established collaboratively with a priority on student success and diversity and with engagement of our external constituencies. We take pride in listening and responding to our community’s needs. Challenges identified include unprepared students and decreased funding. The college is responding to these challenges by exploring opportunities to increase college readiness, including the initiative we are developing to serve at-risk students in our district. To address the state funding shortfall, we’re intentionally pursuing grant funding. Along with sound financial management and prudent spending, the college is able to continue to offer quality education and services. Other strengths identified are the college’s comprehensive curriculum, program review, and assessment processes. The evaluation of what we have in place guides us to where we need to go, and as a result, we’re rolling out an aggressive new program development plan. Through strategic planning utilizing economic modeling in our region, our plan is geared to make our students employable in up-and-coming fields that show increased job growth. The Board of Trustees and I have committed up to $5 million over the next few years for this program development in response to the workforce demands in our community. After welcoming our accreditation visit by the Higher Learning Commission on October 21-23, we have been immersed in self-evaluation. You can read more about accreditation and the HLC visit within this issue. The completion of a self-study has given us pause to reflect on the many accomplishments at Triton over the past seven years of accreditation, identifying strengths as well as opportunities for growth. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to receive them, and I look forward to hearing how Triton College can serve you. Please feel free to contact me through the Triton College Office of the President at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3201, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In 2012, 30 students were displaced after testing out of Triton’s grant-funded ESL program; the Academic Bridge Program, based out of the Adult Education Department, serves as an option for these students. What does an ideal community look like? Is it safe for families to raise children? Does it have parks, walkways and accessible transportation? Are the facilities easy to access? Is it sustainable? These and many other questions have gone through the minds of students involved in Triton College’s Community Rehabilitation Project. The project is the third phase of Triton’s Academic Bridge Program, which is a series of projects to help English as a Second Language (ESL) students who’ve either completed their ESL studies at Triton and/or students who’ve tested out of the ESL program without completing the program who’d like to continue “The program’s intent is two-fold: The students are exposed to the reading and writing requirements of Triton College, which in turn prepares them for the demands of writing across the curriculum,” said Dean of Adult Education Virginia Cabasa-Hess. The program teaches students by providing opportunities to utilize the English language through projects, including presenting a debate on controversial topics and researching and reciting poetry in the student’s original language and in English. With the Community Rehabilitation Project, students were assigned 100 acres of a dying community to think of ways to make it more affordable, livable and sustainable by incorporating indigenous materials from their country of origin. “This project is a culmination of the student’s research on sustainability,” Dr. Cabasa-Hess said. “It is helping them to improve fluency by using the English language to describe their designed communities to others.” Student Amal Arhda’s project, called “Eureka,” meaning “to find a solution,” was a community that was “inviting, exuberant and ideal for newly married couples and singles.” She envisioned solar paneled units, rustic architecture and a glass mall. She also implemented the materials fish bone and compressed fish scales from her native country Morocco into her community. Arhda enjoyed her time in the program. “This program has helped all of us in so many ways,“ she said. “It has opened up my creative side and improved my reading and writing skills.” For more information about the Academic Bridge Program, contact Dr. Virginia CabasaHess at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3259 or 3513, or e-mail email@example.com.

PROUD to be an accredited institution Triton College has been recognized as an accredited institution over the last seven years by the Higher Learning Commission. But just what does it mean to be accredited and why is it important to Triton? Accreditation is a process to distinguish quality educational institutions. Being accredited is important for Triton College to fulfill its mission of student success, as it provides opportunity for state and federal funding and financial assistance for students that otherwise would not be available to Triton College as well as encourages the Triton community to continue improving on all organizational levels, while also assuring the public and employers that Triton’s students receive a quality education. Having a ball at Fall Family Fun Fest Fall Family Fun Fest put children and their families to the test with new activities this year, including Zumba demonstrations and an obstacle course, while still presenting its plethora of educational and fun, fall-inspired activities that the fest is known for – from the straw maze to the sweet treats prepared by Triton’s Hospitality Department, and especially the friendly community atmosphere.

Program Spotlight ‘Cloud’ around with new courses in Triton’s CIS program tion to market their product or service and promote their brand,” he said. “Home and small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and employees of local villages and chamber of commerce groups responsible for updating the website and social media pages can benefit from these courses.” Triton College’s Computer Information Systems (CIS) program is uploading new courses to its curriculum and modifying others to reflect the ever-evolving technological world. CIS Coordinator Mike McGuire said many of the new courses to be offered spring 2014 incorporate marketing into its lessons, as more businesses and organizations look for employees who are knowledgeable about the Internet, particularly social media. “There are a lot of businesses who are turning to social media and search engine optimiza- New courses include learning to work with search engine optimization, which can affect the visibility of a website or webpage in search engines, like Google; social media for businesses – very different from using social media for personal pages, McGuire said; and virtualization with VMware, which allows you to consolidate hardware and run multiple operating systems and applications on a single computer. “These are really powerful tools for students to have in their back pockets that will make them highly desirable to employers in the telecommunications, networking, programming and the web industries,” he said. Complementing these courses, the CIS program also offers courses in cloud computing (the ability to run a program on many connected computers at the same time) and building mobile apps, which will be revised for the next semester.

Future Focus college fair showcased options for higher education The overwhelming turnout at Triton College’s Future Focus college fair proved higher education remains an important path for individuals seeking a successful future. About 1,700 college prospects composed of high school students and college students looking to transfer attended the 36th annual fair on Sept. 24 in Triton’s Robert M. Collins Center, where representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities around the nation, including Triton College, had information readily available. “This is a great opportunity for students to meet with representatives to talk about their higher education endeavors,” said Izabela Zurawska, director of Admissions. “In addition, students and their parents were able to learn about transfer options, financial aid and scholarships offered at Triton through informational sessions held throughout the evening.” Imani Stines, 16, was joined by her mother Torkessa McCottry at the event. “My mom always tells me to take opportunities to research colleges when they are available,” said the Oak Park-River Forest High School junior. “I’m seeing a lot of colleges I never knew existed. I’m getting a lot of information.” “This is a great atmosphere for her to be in,” McCottry said. “It’s getting her into the right frame of mind to prepare for college.” Fourteen-year-old Amir Supikhodjaev, a sophomore at Oak Park-River Forest High School, already knows what he’d like to study in college – aviation. So his goal was to find colleges that offer the program. “I like that the colleges are all in one place, so I can compare,” he said. His mother, Feruza Supikhodjaeva, added, “Aside from that, this fair is giving him experience with talking to college representatives and learning what he can handle when it comes to college courses.” Dominican University representative Reuben L. Burnley said, “It’s never too early for high school students to begin thinking about college, and this fair provides an ideal opportunity to discover their options among some of the top colleges in the Midwest.” Mike Hryndza, a representative for the University of South Alabama, touted the university’s “southern hospitality” and out-of-state tuition costs to prospective students, stating it ranges from $23,000 to $27,000 per year. “We have a lot to offer students, but this fair February 2012 is all about students finding the right fit, the right college for them,” he said.

Honoring Triton’s educational partners Triton College’s partnerships with area K-12 institutions and four-year universities were recognized at a reception on Aug. 6 that brought together fellow educators with a shared commitment to student success. While an opportunity to show gratitude to its educational partners, the annual event also serves as a chance to spark dialogue on new opportunities to establish and strengthen existing partnerships. Attendees at the Salute to Partnerships reception represented such educational institutions as Rhodes School, Walther Christian Academy, Trinity High School, Union Ridge School, Leyden High Schools, Mannheim Middle School, National Louis University, Dominican University, Southern Illinois University, Benedictine University, Governors State University and Eastern Illinois University. “This is a wonderful way to kick off a new academic year,” said Triton College President Patricia Granados. “Bringing our educational partners together to celebrate and discuss ways of extending our collaborative work toward student success is something we always look forward to.” Dr. Kennedi Strickland-Dixon, director of Special Education for School District 89, commends Triton for providing resources to high school students to afford them the opportunity to prepare for college-level coursework, including dual credit classes. “Triton College provides an academic roadmap for students to achieve their education,” she said. The next step, she added, should be to connect the parents of current and prospective students to resources available on campus, such as the Career Services Center and English as a Second Language courses, which can in turn help and even inspire their families and the community to seek out Triton. Dr. Nick Polyak attended the reception as the new superintendent of Leyden High Schools. He was interested in learning more about the high schools’ connection to the college. “Triton is a wonderful option for our students,” he said. “They offer great programming and I’m looking forward to coming up with new ways to showcase their offerings to students.” Learn what you’ll need to get started in any one of Triton’s Allied Health programs by attending an upcoming information session.
