Truman Earns Tree Campus Distinction


Truman was honored with 2021 Tree Campus Higher Education recognition by the Arbor Day Foundation for its dedication to sustainable urban forest management.

The Tree Campus Higher Education program honors colleges and universities for promoting healthy trees and engaging staff and students in conservation goals. Truman achieved the title by meeting Tree Campus USA’s five standards, which include: maintaining 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 project.

Currently there are 392 campuses across the United States with this recognition. Truman has been recognized as a Tree Campus USA school since 2014.

The Arbor Day Foundation has helped campuses throughout the country plant thousands of trees. This work directly supports the Arbor Day Foundation’s Time for Trees initiative, an unprecedented effort to plant 100 million trees in forests and communities and inspire five million tree planters by 2022. Last year, Tree Campus Higher Education schools collectively planted 26,562 trees.
