Truman Symposium

The Truman Symposium (TRU 100) creates a shared experience for first-year students. We challenge ourselves to take a personal interest in our community and the opportunities it provides. We work together on common projects and start to learn how to make something together. By building connections in the Truman community and beyond, you lay the groundwork for what lies ahead after college.

The Truman Symposium is a required course your first year at Truman and is taken concurrently with the Self and Society Seminar.

Promoting Civic Engagement, Community, and Collaboration

A strong sense of community enhances the learning environment. As part of the Truman Symposium, you’ll team up with other students on a project you can use to develop your sense of purpose and leadership.
