Office of the President

Welcome to Triton!

I am honored to have this opportunity to serve as the President of Triton College. I fully embrace the important responsibility of leading the college in providing student-centered programs and services with excellence. During my decades-long career at Triton, I've had the opportunity to witness so many members of our community taking advantage of the educational programs and services we offer to help them achieve their academic, career and personal goals.

My commitment is to lead our highly qualified faculty and staff in supporting the needs of our students through the use of innovative technology and campus initiatives. As change occurs in the workplace and the world, our institution continues to move forward with a strong focus on student success. I am confident that you will find great opportunities at Triton as you endeavor to fulfill your goals and realize your dreams.

Mary-Rita Moore, Triton College President

Triton College President Mary-Rita Moore

Mary-Rita Moore was appointed president of Triton College in November of 2015.  With over 36 years of experience at Triton, President Moore has worked at the front line of the institution, supporting the enrollment process for students and serving as Academic Advisor. She assisted significantly more students in the pursuit of their dreams for an education as the associate dean of Student Services, and later, the dean of Enrollment Services. In those roles, President Moore 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 was responsible for overseeing the Center for Teaching Excellence as well as the Research & Institutional Effectiveness and Technology & Innovation departments. She also led the development of Triton's seven-year strategic plan while serving a critical role in the Higher Learning Commission 2013 reaffirmation visit. 

President Moore holds strong ties to Triton's district. A native from the Village of Norridge, she graduated from Ridgewood High School, and is a graduate of Dominican University, earning her bachelor's and master's degrees in business administration.

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.  President Moore is honored to provide mentorship for new leaders and is most passionate about engaging the community in advancing and integrating student success initiatives on the Triton College campus.
