Message from the Director

On behalf of the RIRAL Transition to College staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our new website. I am especially grateful to Kim Libby for her expertise in website design and for her dedication to making our new website a reality. Whether you are a current student, alumni, employee, mentor, or community partner, we hope you enjoy perusing through the site.

Our primary mission is dedicated to helping students reach their personal, academic, and career goals through the pursuit of higher education. Since 2000, our TTC Program has served hundreds of adult students, many of whom have gone on to graduate the Community College of Rhode Island and transfer to four-year colleges. 

As Program Director, it is a privilege for me to have worked with so many dedicated teachers, mentors, professionals, and determined students. Together we have turned dreams into realities. 

I hope you enjoy our new website as much as we have enjoyed creating it. If you have any comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Marie Crecca-Romero
