Boeing Makes $50,000 Gift to University

The Boeing Company has made a $50,000 gift to the Truman State University Foundation.

Boeing has directed that $10,000 of the gift will be used for annual scholarships in the Division of Business and Accountancy and the Division of Mathematics and Computer Science.

The remaining $40,000 of the gift will be used in the Division of Education for the Master of Education in Teaching (MET), a new alternative teacher preparation project. This is Boeing’s second donation for this project.

Key features of the MET project are the recruitment of mid-career professionals to teaching, a program design requiring two summer terms of study followed by one to two years of mediated support, a competency-based approach to professional preparation, new opportunities for external groups to actively participate in the teacher education process, and a focus on student achievement as the required outcome of teacher’s work.

Boeing is Truman’s second largest corporate contributor and has given more than $220,000 in gifts to the University.

“We are grateful to Boeing for their continued investment in Truman and our students,” University President Barbara Dixon said.
