Truman alumni actively care about the people around them and for the world. In addition to attending events, here are some ways you can get involved with your alma mater and stay connected with the Truman community.
- Get Involved with a Regional Alumni Group
You choose the level of involvement in one of our regional alumni chapters or clubs that fits best with your schedule—show your support by attending events and networking with other alumni. Or get more involved by helping organize an event, serving on a committee, or representing your alumni chapter or club at the annual Alumni Leaders Conference held on campus.
- Become a Mentor
When you volunteer to mentor students, you can share tips with students who are pursuing careers in your area of expertise.

- Hire Truman Graduates/Offer Internship Opportunities
You know the quality of a Truman degree, and our Career Center can help maximize your recruitment efforts by pairing you up with interns and graduates whose talents and interests match your employment needs.
- Make an Annual Gift
Your gifts support learning opportunities that inspire curious and intellectual students who are fueled by the desire to make a difference in the world.

I love my alumni chapter. Our group does so many things around the city that I never knew existed. It’s a great way to meet people outside your normal social circle and of course, network! It’s a low-commitment, fun way to still be involved with the University and get to hear about Truman’s happenings.
