Truman’s 10th annual University Conference is an opportunity for the entire University community – staff, faculty and students – to review and collectively address key issues affecting the future of the University and the ability to provide students with the best possible opportunities to learn and to develop their talents.

This year a number of hands-on sessions have been added as breakout sessions along with a number of informative mini-workshops.
The University Staff Council took the lead in developing these mini-workshops to get more staff involved in the University Conference. Descriptions of the breakout discussion sessions and mini-workshops will be available on the Conference website.
