We teach our students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders. Our rigorous curriculum provides a high-quality educational experience for students seeking breadth as well as depth in their studies and their lives. At Truman, our students discover connections across a wide range of endeavors from hands-on research, to meaningful internships, to enhanced leadership skills through participation in any of Truman's 240 student organizations.
And like all the other intellectual and curious students Truman attracts, your student will learn how to turn these educational pursuits into action to improve their lives, their communities, and the world.

"I chose Truman because of the affordability and its academic reputation. I looked at other schools, both public and private, and discovered that Truman is on par academically with so many universities but for a fraction of the cost. I knew that I wanted a stellar education but didn’t want to graduate with thousands of dollars in debt, so Truman fit that mold perfectly."
