Our Faculty

Tops in Teaching

Our professors pursue excellence in teaching—guiding, mentoring, and challenging you to explore the questions that matter. Because of their unparalleled commitment to teaching, U.S. News and World Report recognized Truman as one of the best regional universities in the Midwest for undergraduate teaching.

Students Are the Top Priority

With a genuine interest in helping you develop your full potential, your professors put teaching you first. They want to make sure you are fully engaged in your learning so you can discover your personal and professional purpose. Their open-door policy means you can drop by their offices to discuss class, get extra help on an assignment, or just chat about the day’s events.

My professors take the time to get to know me, which I appreciate. They also seem to care about bettering my academic experience at Truman.
