Dominican University has established an endowed scholarship in honor of recently retired Triton College President Patricia Granados, which will give deserving Triton College students the opportunity to continue their educations at Dominican University. The endowed scholarship program was made possible through a generous donation by Mary Jo Schuler, a member of Dominican’s board of trustees and president of the Triton College Advisory Board.
“Scholarships create opportunities for talented students with financial need. Indeed, they can change lives by offering the promise of higher education. Dominican is excited about welcoming more Triton College transfer students because of this important scholarship program, and we are grateful to Mary Jo Schuler for making it possible,” said Dr. Donna M. Carroll, president of Dominican University.
The Patricia Granados Endowed Scholarship will support one academically talented Triton College student each year who wishes to continue his or her education at Dominican. The scholarship strengthens the long-term partnership between Triton and Dominican while honoring Dr. Granados for her leadership in advancing access to college for all students.
Granados has dedicated 30 years to Triton College, starting in the adult education department, continuing as director of the Nuevos Horizontes Program, moving up to vice president for academic services and student affairs, and culminating as president in 2001.
“Patricia has capably represented more than 12,000 students each year and has been responsive to the needs of more than 300,000 residents in 25 west suburban communities. She has been committed to Triton 24/7 and has accomplished much with grace, integrity and optimism,” said Carroll.
Granados retired from Triton College at the end of last year. Mary-Rita Moore, currently associate vice president of strategic planning, was appointed interim president on Jan. 1. Moore received a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in business administration from Dominican University.
