Truman has been accredited since 1914 by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Truman consistently achieves national recognition for its high-quality academics and affordability. You have probably seen Truman mentioned in college rankings published in U.S. News and World Report, Princeton Review, Consumers Digest, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, and Washington Monthly, just to name a few.
A 16:1 student/faculty ratio means you have advisors and mentors to help guide you through your academic options, internships, research, and professional goals. This makes Truman a great choice whether you already know what you want to pursue or plan to explore your options.
Learning Outside the Classroom
Active Student Body
There is always something taking place on campus — sports, plays, music performances, art shows, live entertainment — and with around 250 student organizations, student media, Bulldog athletics, intramural recreational sports, Greek Life, and more, you can pursue your interests and discover new ones.
We won’t just prepare you to thrive on your first job after college, we give you the tools to succeed throughout your entire career — a fact that’s reflected in the successful outcomes of our graduates.
Truman’s mission includes providing a liberal arts and sciences education that prepares you for life well beyond your first job. By building a broad educational foundation, you develop an interdisciplinary mindset that allows you to succeed in whatever you pursue throughout your life.
