Outstanding Programs & Services
An innovative new program at Triton College is addressing the issue of college readiness in the subject that is often the most challenging for incoming students – mathematics.
Triton College’s iLaunch Lab opened at the start of the spring 2018 semester. It allows students who place into developmental math courses to move away from the traditional lecture-based classroom and into a collaborative learning environment.
Instructors and tutors are available in the iLaunch Lab to provide one-on-one help to students, helping them to master specific topics. This program will prepare students to accelerate quickly into higher level math courses at multiple points during the semester. That means they’ll be ready for credit-level courses sooner, saving them time and money in the process.
The iLaunch Program was created in partnership with Northeastern Illinois University as part of the Exit on Time in STEM Project. The new lab was built thanks to institutional support and a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The grant is designed to allow Hispanic-serving institutions to provide extensive academic support to Hispanic and low-income students that major in STEM fields of study.
