Celebrating 60 years:

Our Past, Present and Future

60th Logo

Since our foundation in 1964, Triton College has been guided by a compelling vision: To foster a community with equitable opportunity for growth and success. That vision has led to lives changed, communities served.

In our 60 years together, Triton has grown in footprint, academic offerings, and regional impact. Our steadfast commitment to providing a student-centered, lifelong learning environment continues to serve as a valued educational resource for our diverse communities. The exemplary work of our faculty and staff has facilitated meaningful engagement within the college and across our district communities.

As we celebrate this milestone anniversary, we invite you to explore our anniversary activities and events, view photos of Triton through the years, and learn more about our strategic imperatives designed to advance our mission: Valuing the individual, educating and serving the community.
