Mary-Rita Moore was appointed president of Triton College in November of 2015 after serving as interim president since January of 2015. Moore came to Triton in 1983, working at the front line of the institution with their registration needs at the Welcome Desk and serving as Academic Advisor. She was able to help even more students pursue their dreams of an education as the associate dean of Student Services, and later, the dean of Enrollment Services, of which she implemented new initiatives to improve retention and completion rates at Triton and worked collaboratively with academic faculty and administrators to streamline the registration process.
In 2012, she was appointed to the position of associate vice president of Strategic Planning, where she led the development of Triton's seven-year strategic plan and also played a critical role in the Higher Learning Commission 2013 reaffirmation visit.
Moore holds strong ties to Triton's district. She was born and raised in Norridge, graduating from Ridgewood High School, and is a graduate of Dominican University, where she earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in business administration.
Serving the community, she's sat on the regional board for the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) and has provided leadership to the local chapter of the Boy Scouts of America.
Moore has been recognized for her campus innovations, implementing technology solutions to improve efficiency in service and improving the "front door" experience for Triton's students and families. In 2010, she was awarded, along with several of her colleagues, by the Des Plaines Valley Region (DVR) School/College Partnership for bringing the community together through education.
Moore is honored to provide mentorship for new leaders and is most passionate about advancing and integrating student success initiatives on the Triton College campus.
