The Triton College Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is designed to assist veterans as they transition from serving in the Armed Services to Triton College as a student and civilian. We aim to help veteran students successfully attain their educational goals, which will prepare them for a career as well as support them in becoming a lifelong learner.
The Veterans Resource Center was created through the efforts of the 2015 President’s Leadership Academy. The vision stemmed from the Leadership Academy understanding that Triton College needed to identify a centralized location on campus for veterans to gather, in an effort to strengthen support for veterans in the colleges’ community.
The VRC will provide veterans in the community, active duty personnel, and their families with a welcoming environment that offers access to academic, career, and community resources. This goal will be accomplished by providing programs on how Veterans can access educational and financial assistance through their appropriate benefits, as well as informing them of available campus resources. The VRC also serves as a lounge area that provides a quiet study environment and a computer station to assist our veterans.
To obtain access to the VRC one must be a Triton College veteran student, or a child of a Triton College veteran student. This information will be verified by the Welcome Center Coordinator, Toni Neals, and you will be provided with a VRC sticker that will allow access into the VRC. For more information contact Toni Neals, Welcome Center Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (708) 456-0300 ext. 3731.
The Veterans Resource Center is temporarily located in the J-Building room 236.The hours of operation are as follows:
Monday – Thursday: 10am – 5pm
Friday: 10am – 4pm
In 2011, Triton College was selected to take part in U.S. President Barack Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge that calls for interfaith cooperation and programming in service to others. The mission is to bring together people from different religious and non-religious backgrounds to tackle community challenges.
Triton College chose to provide a service and honor our military men and women and their families. Our aim is to understand the needs of veterans on campus and in the community in order to provide them with the resources and services necessary for them to make a successful transition from the battlefield to the classroom and/or to resuming productive lives in their community through partnerships with area organizations, businesses and parishes.
