The primary purpose of this report is to demonstrate that Triton College meets the North Central Association's (NCA's) twenty-four General Institutional Requirements and satisfies NCA's five criteria of Educational Excellence. To achieve this goal, the report presents a comprehensive picture of Triton College's mission, organization, programs, and resources. The executive summary provides highlights of the report. The introduction discusses college actions taken in response to the concerns stated by the NCA evaluating team after their visit to the college in 1994. The main body of the report consists of five chapters: (1) mission and purposes; (2) resources; (3) educational services and student outcomes; (4) institutional planning; and (5) integrity. Two shorter chapters follow the main body of the report. They include a summary explanation of how Triton College meets the NCA's General Institutional Requirements, and a discussion on Triton College's compliance with regulations contained in the federal government's Higher Education Reauthorization Act. Based upon this conclusion, the college requested continued accreditation from NCA's Commission on Institutions of Higher Education for a 10-year period. Several supplemental tables, charts, and maps are included throughout the document. An organizational chart is contained in the appendix. Contains an index. (TGO)
