  • Truman Recognized as No. 1 Public University in the Midwest Region

    For the 17th year in a row, Truman has been recognized as the No. 1 Public University in the Midwest Regional category by U.S. News & World Report.

    This recognition comes from the newly released U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges 2014” guidebook. Truman is also ranked 10th overall in the Midwest Regional category among both private and public institutions that provide a full range of undergraduate and master’s programs.

    Other notable entries for Truman in this year’s rankings include No. 5 in the “A Strong Commitment to Teaching” section, where the University was one of only six schools in the Midwest Region to be listed.

    Additionally, Truman earned the No. 8 spot in the region in the “Great Schools at Great Prices” section. Of the 15 schools listed, Truman was the only public institution.

    Truman also shows up in the “A Focus on Student Success” section in the category of “Undergraduate Research/Creative Projects.” Truman’s research program has garnered national recognition over the years since many students are able to participate in research at the undergraduate level as opposed to waiting until graduate school. Inclusion in this section is based on nominations from college presidents, chief academic officers and deans of admissions. The schools with the most nominations were listed alphabetically.  

    Among Missouri schools, Truman is the only one to be listed in the Midwest Region for the “A-Plus Schools for B Students” category, which emphasizes schools where “spirit and hard work could make all the difference to admission offices.”

    U.S. News & World Report bases its regional rankings on peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, graduation rate performance, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources and alumni giving. Complete listings are available at www.usnews.com/colleges.
  • Runner Returns After Battle with Cancer

    For many Truman students, “back to school” comes with a series of inconvenient tasks. Moving in, buying books, signing leases and trekking around campus in the triple digit heat can surely lessen the excitement a new semester bring. However, for sophomore agricultural business major Miranda Biddle these are welcome changes that not only signify the return to classes, but a return to normalcy.

    To any other person, Biddle seems like an average college student - she enjoys hanging out with her friends, attending class and running cross country and track for Truman, but her friends, professors, teammates and coaches know there is more to her story.
        
    Early in 2013 Biddle was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system that affects only around 1,200 people in the United States annually. Biddle was diagnosed after returning from winter break when she noticed that she was having trouble keeping up with her teammates. When she went to doctors she was originally diagnosed with the flu, but Biddle knew that something else was wrong.
        
    “I remember thinking, ‘I don’t think that’s right,'” she said.

    After running x-rays and CAT-scans her cancer was diagnosed.

    While the news surprised her family, friends and teammates, Biddle felt a sense of relief at finally knowing for certain what was impacting her running. After learning her diagnosis, Biddle’s competitive edge came out as she was determined to show cancer “who’s boss.” She compared her six chemotherapy treatments and 25 rounds of radiation as the hardest running workout of her life.

    “I just looked at it as a workout," Biddle said. "Each treatment was a rep, and I had to get through it even though I had to do it again and again and on my final one I told myself, ‘Okay, get through this last one and you are all done.’”

    Though the treatments were difficult, Biddle was adamant that she not be treated any differently, especially when it came to schoolwork. Although her treatments required her to return to her home in Aledo, Ill., she remained enrolled and completed her entire class load for the semester. With the help of her professors, she made it work by watching recordings of lectures online and driving back to Kirksville to take tests.

    Not only has Biddle, who finished her last treatment Aug. 23, returned to Truman this semester, but she is also preparing to return to training with her teammates. Though less than a month ago she could barely run for five minutes, she is now attending regular practices and hopes to be in shape for competing for the spring track season.
        
    Undergoing the treatments for cancer has made Biddle appreciate the small things in life. Her favorite part of finishing treatments is the freedom she has regained; the freedom to go outside or listen to lectures in person, to run, or even be able to simply move around. She is also excited to enjoy food again.

    Her battle with cancer also helped her become a more compassionate person. Biddle describes the connections she made, with not only other people struggling with cancer, but with those who are helping to fight it, as something she is truly grateful to get out of the situation. Biddle hopes to get involved with organizations such as the American Cancer Society in the near future.
        
    For now Biddle is just happy to be back in classes. Though many would consider her luck to be bad, Biddle considers herself blessed. The support she received from everyone she met at Truman, her roommates, teammates, coaches and faculty, helped lift her spirits during the last year and continue to keep her moving forward.

    Looking back Biddle said, “Going through all of this made me realize even more, how much of a good decision Truman was.”

  • Nursing Department Receives $150,000 Grant

    The Nursing Department received a Nursing Education Incentive Grant for the maximum amount of $150,000.

    The Education Incentive Grant is awarded to organizations to expand the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ASBN) program. The funds will help meet increased demand, create market-competitive salary and benefit packages needed to attract and retain highly qualified faculty for didactic and clinical teaching, add at least two clinical/instructional adjunct faculty positions to increase the frequency of nursing course offerings, expand clinical sites and partnerships and increase recruitment efforts for prospective ABSN students.

  • Information Session Scheduled for Missouri Government Internship

    The full-time Missouri Government internship offers a hands-on opportunity for students to intern at the Capitol in Jefferson City, Mo., with a public official, legislator or state agency during the Spring 2014 semester.

    Interns receive a stipend of $2,500 and up to 15 hours of credit. Duties may vary based on each individual public official, however, typical duties include attending meetings and making reports, communicating with constituents, doing office and computer work, conducting research, assisting with committee hearings, writing speeches, editing printed materials, tracking and summarizing legislation and being on call to help with projects.

    Students wishing to participate in the program are required to have a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit, a minimum of two semesters at Truman, a cumulative GPA of 2.75 and divisional approval.

    No special coursework is required prior to the internship and all majors are encouraged to apply for the internship. Successful applicants will be of sound character and possess qualities that reflect positively upon themselves and the University.

  • Assistance Needed on Bird Research Project

    Assistant professor of biology Jason Luscier is conducting research on campus and is asking for help from the Truman community.

    Luscier, along with one graduate student and 14 undergraduate students, is conducting an ongoing research study about window bird strike mortality on the Truman campus. The team is asking for students, faculty and staff to report sightings of a dead or injured bird near a window on campus.

    The second-leading cause of bird mortality in the U.S. is window strikes, following habitat loss. Birds do not perceive windows the same way that humans do because of the reflections, which can be confusing to them. Consequently, the birds fly into the windows, which depending on the speed and angle, may result in injury or death.

    College campuses represent areas that have a high concentration of buildings with windows, and Luscier and his research team believe that this may result in higher levels of bird mortality due to window strikes. During the fall migration, the research team hopes to gain insight into this problem on the Truman campus through identification of the number and species of birds injured or killed by windows.

    To report a dead or injured bird near a window on campus, contact Luscier at jluscier@truman.edu or at 660.785.4612.
