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.
Employers and graduate and professional schools recognize the value of a degree from Truman — a fact that is reflected in our high placement rate after graduation. Thirty-five percent of our graduating seniors enter graduate or professional school.
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.
I love how easy it is to get to know people at Truman because of the size. Whenever I go to class or attend an event on campus, I always know at least a handful of people.
