Our faculty pursue excellence in teaching—guiding, mentoring, and challenging students to explore the questions that matter and dig more deeply for answers. As active teacher-scholars, our professors enjoy working alongside smart and curious students who are attracted to the intellectual learning environment offered at Truman.
Our faculty are active in their fields and eagerly share their knowledge and experience. They push you to do your best as you discover connections across a wide range of endeavors—one of the hallmarks of a Truman education. And as an undergraduate student at Truman, you can work one-on-one beside your professors and mentors to develop new and innovative research.
At Truman, 93 percent of our classes are taught by instructional faculty—not teaching assistants—and your professors take a genuine interest in your success. Their open-door policy means you can drop by their offices to discuss class, get extra help on an assignment, or just chat about the day’s events.
Interested in visiting campus and meeting a professor in your area of interest? We can help you schedule a personal visit.
"The care and concern that my professors have for their students is the best part of classes here. They come to class every day truly excited to teach their subject."
– Christopher B., Music (Liberal Arts) & English Major
