Truman Nationally Recognized for Environmental Commitment

Dedication to improving the environment on campus has earned Truman another year of recognition as a Tree Campus USA school.

Tree Campus USA, a national program launched in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota, honors colleges, universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation. The program recognizes campuses that strive to engage their student population in service centered on campus and community forestry efforts.

To obtain this distinction, Truman met five core standards for effective campus forest management: a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and student service-learning projects.
