Success After Truman
Truman’s focus on educating the whole person through a well-rounded curriculum of the liberal arts and sciences prepares students for great success in any career or graduate program they pursue.
In fact, six months after graduation, 92 percent of the Class of 2012 were either employed or enrolled in graduate school. Truman alumni were working at places such as:
- Caterpillar Inc.
- Johns Hopkins
- National Public Radio
- University of Missouri Health Care
Other recent graduates continued their education at institutions such as:
- American University
- Boston University
- California Institute of Technology
- Cornell University
- Duke University
- George Washington University
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Stanford University
- University of Notre Dame
- University of Oxford
- Vanderbilt University
- Yale University
And that’s not all:
- Our Class of 2012 law school acceptance rate was 100 percent.
- Recent rankings place our graduates’ first-time pass rates on the CPA exam #4 nationally.
- 100 percent of our education majors have met every state exit standard by the time they graduate.
- Over the past 10 years, our students have been accepted into medical schools at a rate of 70 percent—20 percent higher than the national average—attending such institutions as Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Washington University, Creighton University, The University of Iowa, Medical College of Wisconsin, University of Kansas, Northwestern University, Georgetown, Boston University, A.T. Still University, and the University of Chicago.
Success That Makes a Difference
In addition to developing the skills and knowledge base to lead successful careers, our students also graduate with a desire to make a difference—whether in their professional fields, communities, or world. It’s why within the past five years, Truman has ranked in the top 25 of medium-size schools in the nation producing the most Peace Corps volunteers. Because of the connections they make as a part of Truman’s learning community, our graduates go on to pursue fulfilling, meaningful lives of influence.
