Welcome from the President
On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff at Trinity River Campus, welcome! We invite you to come to our beautiful campus in the heart of downtown Fort Worth and experience both the friendliness of our campus and our commitment to your success as a collegiate.
Whatever your educational goals, the Trinity River Campus will support you. Our students enroll in university transfer courses; a program in Sign Language Interpreting that leads to professional licensure; a program in library technology with articulation directly to a program at Texas Woman's University; a cutting edge program in Geographical Information Systems; and a vibrant curriculum in business marketing.
TCC’s Nursing program and five Allied Health programs – Respiratory Care, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiologic Technology, Surgical Technology, and Long Term Care Administration – have homes at the Trinity River Campus East Center for Health Care Professions. Health Information Technology is also a vital healthcare program at Trinity River Campus. All these programs lead to licensures and to careers in healthcare. High school students from the Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences (TABS), an early college high school, and the Mansfield Independent School District Dual Credit Medical Academy earn collegiate credits at Trinity River Campus as they complete their high school courses and pursue their goals to be health professionals.
Success in college often depends on more than clear goals and professional programs. Research shows that students’ connections with other students, with clubs, and with faculty and staff increase their chances for successful completion. That is why Student Development Services deliberately plans events to connect students through clubs and valuable leadership initiatives. Especially important to our students and their clubs is The Idea Store, pictured on this page. Staffed by professional personnel trained in student development—and aided by friendly, knowledgeable students—it is one of the busiest spots on campus.
Community and Industry Education offers courses ranging from Senior Education weight training to QuickBooks Accounting to basics of computing. CIE also offers workforce development and literacy courses, and we are especially proud to offer the GED preparation courses and testing in both English and Spanish. Graduates of our recently developed CIE program for ophthalmic assistants are already employed in the Metroplex, and our recent cohort of CIE students has just completed requirements for certification as phlebotomy technicians.
Like our sister campuses at Tarrant County College, Trinity River Campus is dedicated to helping all students in our county – and especially low income students and students of color – to achieve the American dream of higher education. Of course our faculty, advisors, and staff work to help all students establish their goals and the pathways to achieving them. We are proud to support veterans, students with special needs, working adults, and weekend students.
Please join us. You’ll discover that we practice our belief that education changes lives.
