Across industries and sectors, Truman alumni pursue lives as capable professionals, engaged citizens, and supportive colleagues. And they show generous support for their alma mater by investing in Truman.
Truman’s vibrant, active campus exemplifies the ideals held by its namesake, Harry S. Truman. The only Missourian to serve as president of the United States, Truman embraced and promoted the value of an affordable, well-rounded education for everyone. We do, too. We pursue it.
"I chose Truman because of the affordability and its academic reputation. I looked at other schools, both public and private, and discovered that Truman is on par academically with so many universities but for a fraction of the cost. I knew that I wanted a stellar education but didn’t want to graduate with thousands of dollars in debt, so Truman fit that mold perfectly."
