Our People

A Connected Leader

Our University president exemplifies the Bulldog spirit by engaging with the Truman community at activities like Coffee with the President, casual events where any member of the campus community can ask questions about issues facing the University.

Ambitious and Curious Students

The typical Truman student has a thirst for learning. They live and breath their passions. They like to laugh, create, dream, plan, learn, adapt and work hard in everything they do. They inspire each other, care about each other, and want to make the world better.

Dedicated Faculty

Our professors display a strong commitment to quality teaching by encouraging students to think, to question and to lead. They advise academic clubs and honor societies. They suggest internships and research. And they guide, mentor, and challenge students to explore the questions that matter both in and out of the classroom.

My favorite part about Truman is its learning environment. Through its professors, classes, and programs, Truman encourages its students to be curious, lifelong learners.
