  • Alumna to Present on Papal Ceremony


    Alumna Jasmine Cloud will return to present “Taking Possession of the City: Papal Ceremony and Urbanism in the Early Modern Roman Forum,” at 5 p.m. Feb. 6 in Ophelia Parrish 2210.

    A 2005 graduate of Truman, Cloud went on to earn a master’s degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Ph.D. from Temple University. She is currently an assistant professor at the University of Central Missouri and has published her research in “Reflections on Renaissance Venice, Perspectives on Public Space in Rome, from Antiquity to the Present Days,” and “Venice in the Renaissance: Essays in Honor of Patricia Fortini Brown.” Cloud was the recipient of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation’s Institutional Fellowship, which included a residency at the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome.

    The presentation will focus on the historic ceremony of the posseso, in which a newly elected pope processed through the streets of Rome from the Vatican to the Lateran. The posseso took on new significance in the early modern period. This ceremonial procession presented the pope and his entourage to the people of Rome, and renewed the urban landscape of the city for the new spiritual ruler. The Roman Forum became a particularly charged site in this spectacle, featuring elaborate displays and rituals that tied the papacy to the ancient city’s emperors, whose triumphs this religious ceremony emulated in structure and route.

    All are invited to attend the lecture, especially those interested in art history, Italian studies, and early modern (Renaissance) studies.

    Cloud’s visit is funded by the School of Arts and Letters Alumni Visit Grant in support of the School of Arts and Letters strategic goal of enhancing interaction between alumni, faculty and students.  Visits by alumni include substantive interaction on campus with students and faculty, and at least one public presentation as part of the visit.

  • Nursing Pass Rate Exceeds State Average

     
    In 2016, graduates from Truman’s Department of Nursing exceeded the state average pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for registered nurses.
     
    According to the NCLEX-RN pass rates recently released by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, 97.73 percent of Truman nursing graduates passed on their first attempt. By comparison, the overall Missouri rate was 85.50 percent.
     
    Truman offers both the traditional four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, as well as an Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. For the ABSN, students who already have a bachelor’s degree in another subject can earn a nursing degree in 15 months.
     
    The Truman Department of Nursing has the seal of approval from the Missouri State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

  • Deadline for State’s Largest Student Financial Aid Program Approaching


    The priority deadline for Missouri’s largest student financial aid program, the Access Missouri Grant Program, is Feb. 1.  

    The Free Application for Student Financial Aid, commonly known as FAFSA, must be completed by the priority date to guarantee a grant award if students meet all eligibility requirements.

    Maximum grant amounts are determined primarily by available state funding and the number of students eligible to receive the grant each year. Specific award amounts are based on students’ financial need, the type of college they attend and other financial aid they receive.

    Students completing the FAFSA after Feb. 1, but before the April 3 final deadline, could still receive a grant if funding is available.

    In order to be eligible for most federal and state financial aid programs, including the Access Missouri Grant Program, students must file a FAFSA every year they are in school.

    For more information about the Access Missouri Grant, including all eligibility requirements, visit dhe.mo.gov/ppc/grants/accessmo.php.

  • Peace Corps Prep Meeting Set for Feb. 9


    In addition to ranking among the top 20 volunteer-producing mid-sized schools in the nation, Truman offers a Master’s International Program in conjunction with Peace Corps service.

    The Peace Corps Prep Program will prepare students for international development fieldwork and potential Peace Corps service through interrelated coursework, hands-on experience and professional development support. The program adds value to the Truman experience and prepares students for international service while they pursue their passion to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

  • Grants Support Summer Research


    Applications for the TruScholars and Interdisciplinary Research Community Grant programs are due Feb. 6.

    TruScholars Program Details
    The Office of Student Research will once again offer intensive, summer TruScholars undergraduate research experiences. The purpose of the TruScholars program is to foster collaborative faculty-student research and creative activities to enhance undergraduate student learning. Projects supported by this program should exhibit the potential for scholarly publication, presentation at a regional or national conference, public performance or a gallery showing.

    The formal part of the 2017 TruScholars program will coincide with the eight-week summer semester, beginning June 5 and ending July 28.

    During the program, students should devote full-time effort to their project, and faculty mentors should be continuously available for consultation and collaboration. If student-faculty teams would like to begin their research earlier than June 5 because of the nature of the research, or enthusiasm for the project, they are encouraged to do so. The student-faculty team should develop a schedule that is best for the project with the understanding that there will be intense effort during the eight-week session. Application guidelines, important dates and frequently asked questions can be found at the OSR website.
     
    To optimize the quality of the TruScholars experience, there will be a number of required elements including an orientation during the spring semester, attendance at two of three professional development workshops during the eight-week summer program, and presentation at the TruScholars Research Symposium, Aug. 26. Specific dates are given at the OSR website. Faculty will be asked to attend the orientation and research symposium as well as either lead or attend two of the three workshops.

    The application includes a project description among other components and therefore students are encouraged to identify a faculty mentor as early as possible.

    Interdisciplinary Research Community Grant Details
    The OSR is continuing with an initiative to support interdisciplinary research teams over the summer of 2017 to serve as models for interdisciplinary undergraduate research and creative activities, and to foster a sense of community among Truman faculty, staff and students.

    These Interdisciplinary Research Community Grant proposals should be written by two mentors, each from different departments, who will collaborate on a research project that involves and trains two undergraduate students, one from each of the mentor’s departments. Projects may be new or ongoing. Mentors choose student participants. Projects will be funded up to the maximum value of $9,500 per team and should equate to an eight-week equivalent period of time during the summer, June 5 to July 28. Budget may include $1,500 max stipend per mentor, $3,000 max stipend per student, and $9,500 max allocation for materials. Any material budget greater than $500 must be subtracted from the stipend budget amounts at the discretion of the mentors.

    See the OSR website for full details of the program, program requirements and the proposal guidelines. Students and faculty involved in the IRC grant program will be required to participate in TruScholars summer workshops and the TruScholars Research Symposium. The deadline for applications, written by the two mentors, will be Feb. 6.

  • Pitch Contest Returns with Cash Prizes of $6,000


    This semester, an elevator pitch contest named Bulldog B.I.T.E. could win aspiring entrepreneurs more than just bragging rights as the contest offers a top prize of $3,000.

    An elevator pitch outlines the concept or idea for a product, service or project in a short period of time, typically from 30 seconds to three minutes. The length of the pitch mirrors the time spent waiting for and riding an elevator in a high-rise building. The purpose of the pitch is to spur the interest of a potential investor or financial backer.

    Bulldog B.I.T.E., which stands for Business Innovation by Truman Entrepreneurs, is open to any student or team of students — up to three members — enrolled during the 2017 spring semester. A student or team may submit only one pitch concept for the contest. Participants may pitch for-profit or not-for-profit concepts.

    Students will submit a concept or idea for products, services or solutions to problems facing humanity in a video pitch no longer than two minutes by 11:59 p.m. March 6. The video should not include any props, except the product prototype, and should be one continuous shot. The video submission should include: name of the individual or team members; problem or issue being addressed by the concept; product description; target market; competitive advantage of the concept; value creation; and expected future use of prize money.

    Judges will select six finalists to present their pitch to a live panel of judges, April 7. The top three finalists will receive cash awards: the cash prize for first place is $3,000; second place is $2,000; and third place is $1,000. Pitch participants, judges, alumni and audience members are then invited to a networking event following the competition.

    The Bulldog B.I.T.E. is sponsored by Villhard Growth Partners and Mastercard. On campus promotion is provided by the Career Center.

    For complete details and entry information, click here.
