Iowa Alumni Chapter

Iowa Alumni Chapter

Just one state away, there’s a Truman Alumni Chapter passionate about forging connections, whether it’s with the University that still feels like home, our communities or most individually, in the lives of our local alumni and currently enrolled Truman students. Hailing from across the great state of Iowa, we’re an active and engaged group. No matter our age, what Iowa city we live in or our profession, we’re a welcoming group committed to investing in our communities and the university.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event, whether we’re volunteering, learning more about local history and the arts or just spending time with others who care as much about Truman and the ideals the university embodies as we do.

I love my alumni chapter. Our group does so many things around the city that I never knew existed. It’s a great way to meet people outside your normal social circle and of course, network! It’s a low-commitment, fun way to still be involved with the University and get to hear about Truman’s happenings.
