Public university in the Midwest for 18 years running (U.S. News & World Report)
The Department of Philosophy and Religion at Truman has a long-running tradition of gathering students from across the nation to share the results of their research in philosophy and religious studies at the Undergraduate Philosophy and Religion Conference held on the Truman campus each year.
All undergraduate and graduate students who have a variety of philosophical and religious interests, from the novice to the maturing critical scholar, are invited to submit papers. By taking the challenge of submitting their original work to the conference, students have the potential of sharing their thoughts with other interested intellectuals from different areas of the country and different areas of expertise.
The conference is extraordinary in that it places the undergraduate as a central focus and demands scholarly activity at the undergraduate level worthy of presentation and praise.
