Programs created and implemented by Triton College’s dedicated faculty and staff are once again receiving recognition for providing high quality educational opportunities to students throughout our communities.

 Triton’s School of Continuing Education recently received the National Council of Continuing Education and Training’s (NCCET) 2016 Exemplary Program Award in the category of Workforce & Economic Development. The award honored Triton’s Facilities & Engineering Technology Program which is an associate degree program developed in partnership with and for the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 399.

 The NCCET awards programs for outstanding performance based on criteria including innovation, sustainability, replicability and need/impact.

 Triton College was also recently awarded the Des Plaines Valley Region School/College Alliance Best Practices Award for its ‘Math Ready’ Program.

 Through the ‘Math Ready’ Program, high school students within Triton’s district take developmental math classes taught at their school, which helps prepare them to succeed in college level math courses once they graduate. Triton launched the program in 2014, and has since expanded it to include East and West Leyden, Proviso East and West, Oak Park and River Forest and Riverside-Brookfield high schools.

 The Triton College Board of Trustees recognized these accomplishments during the November Monthly Board Meeting. School of Continuing Education Dean Paul Jensen and Center for Business and Professional Development Director Patricia Shields accepted the NCCET Exemplary Program award. Associate Dean of College Readiness Ric Segovia and math faculty member Roseanne Feltman accepted the Des Plaines Valley Region School/College Alliance Best Practices Award.
