Truman’s spot at the top of the U.S. News & World Report college rankings now stands at 27 years and counting.

The University earned multiple recognitions in the 2024 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings, including another year as the No. 1 public school in the Midwest region. Among both public and private institutions, Truman was No. 5 overall for the Midwest region. Notably, Truman was the only Missouri school in the top 10 of this particular list and the only public school from the Show-Me State to be included in the top 65 spots.

“We put students first at Truman, and everyone on campus is focused on helping them succeed academically, professionally and personally,” said University President Susan L. Thomas. “While we are always honored to be recognized for our efforts, that is never our goal. We earn national recognitions because we are always working to provide the best educational experience for our students.”
