For Triton College student Brian Miller Jr., the school’s Triumph Program provides a safe space to share and learn new skills with other young men of color.
“It gives minority male students a perspective, and it also helps with seeing someone that looks like you or that is going through some of the same stuff as you,” he said. “It shifts your thoughts on how to go through college life.”
Triton is in the first year of a five-year, $500,000 grant to expand Triumph, short for Transforming and Inspiring Undergraduate Men Pursuing Higher Education. The funding, provided by the Educational Credit Management Corp. Foundation, will allow Triton to grow the program on its own campus while introducing similar programs at other Chicago area schools.
