A college small enough for professors to know their students by name, Truman attracts some of the brightest minds in the country by providing an engaged community of learners where individuals matter. Students explore a wide range of perspectives and learn important critical-thinking, problem-solving and communication skills that empower them for success in multiple career paths. Challenging academics, compelling and supportive professors, learning experiences that count in the real world, and nearly 240 student organizations create an environment where intellectually curious students can thrive.

Truman has been ranked as the #1 Public University in the Midwest among schools with bachelors and masters degrees for the last 20 years. Truman enrolls approximately 6,200 undergraduate and 250 graduate students. There are around 400 international students from over 40 different countries.

Truman State University is a highly selective institution with a very talented student body. Truman emphasizes undergraduate research, study abroad, service learning and internships. The average class size is 22 students and the faculty-to-student ratio is 1:16.
