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.
Founded in 1867, 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.
Truman is a supportive and personal community. At Truman, you can count on the fact that your professors will know your name, say “hi” to you on campus, ask about life, and go out of their way to help with everything from research to internships to studying abroad.
