MISSION
The primary purpose of the Physical Plant Department is to provide a safe, clean, accessible, colorful and operational campus with an environment that enhances the learning, working and socializing aspects of student life and enhances our image in the community. To accomplish this, the Department must work together in a courteous, efficient and fiscally responsible manner, keeping the needs of the student at the top of our list of priorities. We must also keep the lines of communication open among all Triton employees in order to keep people involved in the decision-making. Working together with other departments within the Triton family is crucial to improving programs and services where needed. Enhancements in our infrastructure are ongoing, which provides Triton with an environment that will handle all our new technology as it becomes available.
