Public university in the Midwest for 18 years running (U.S. News & World Report)
Our smart and curious students pursue their education with intensity, and without a doubt, Pickler Memorial Library is a favorite place to study. In response to the growth of digital information and changes to student study needs, the 2014-2015 Parent Project is designed to create technology-enhanced, collaborative learning stations in the Library.
These multi-user work stations encourage collaboration by allowing students to share information on their laptops, tablets and hand-held devices on a central screen. This project is a fundamental step in the Library’s development of a learning commons concept with flexible learning spaces.
Through this project, Truman addresses the need to provide access to the necessary tools for learning. This project also demonstrates Truman Parents investment in all students and their success.

"The close-knit environment provided by Truman was one of the biggest reasons I chose this school! It allows me to focus on my studies with professors who truly care about my well-being, while at the same time participate in different activities with my friends. In addition to all the scholarships offered at Truman, the atmosphere here definitely played a big part in my decision."
