Triton College's concept of personal growth is premised on current student development theory and the assumption that responsible students desire to become more complete persons emotionally, intellectually and physically. The Office of Student Services offers an array of student support services that aid in assisting students in their pursuit of social, cultural and professional development.
The Dean of Student Services oversees the areas of AmeriCorps, OVW Office on Violence against Women, Title IX, TRIUMPH/ SURGE and Student Life. In addition, the Dean’s office oversees the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) and handles matters related to student conduct.
