  • Celebrating 150: The SUB Turns 50


    The Student Union Building was originally completed Oct. 20, 1967 with the intent of bringing the University community together by providing facilities where student-based activities could take place. While it has continued to maintain this distinct purpose through the years, the Student Union Building has also grown and expanded along with Truman to fulfill emerging student needs.

    Although the exterior has remained mostly the same, the inside of the Student Union Building has experienced many changes throughout the years. Major renovations in 1986, 1990, 1994, 2006 and 2016 have altered the layout and aesthetic of the interior of the building.

    The 2006 renovation brought changes such as: the conversion of the Quiet Lounge to the HUB, including a new passenger elevator, staircase and seating; the addition of the south entrance on the first floor; the creation of the SUB Down Under venue; and restrooms on the main floor.

    Other main modifications have included the expansion of the University Bookstore (1986), the renovation of the Snack Bar now known as the Mainstreet Market (1990), and removal of the bowling lanes on the lower level (1991).

    Mainstreet Market was revamped during the latest renovation and now features Chick-fil-A, Slice of Life, Wholly Habaneros, Mein Bowl and Hissho Sushi.

  • Visiting Econ Speaker to Address Income Inequality


    Antony Davies, professor of economics at Duquesne University, will present “Income Inequality – Myths and Facts” at 7 p.m. Oct. 24 in Baldwin Hall 114.

    Concerns with income inequality range from the well-founded to mere envy dressed up in moral clothing. To better identify well-founded concerns requires dispelling commonly held myths about inequality and about economics itself. Davies conducts research on the economic effects of government policy and regularly lectures for staff members at the House of Representatives. He studied economics and minored in mathematics and philosophy as an undergraduate at St. Vincent College. He received the Distinguished Dissertation Award from the University of Albany in New York for his thesis involving multi-dimensional panel data in econometrics.

    Davies has authored and produced more than 50 professional publications and presentations, 200 op-eds and 200 educational videos on public policy topics. He has also appeared in more than 100 radio and television programs and received a NASA grant for developing statistical techniques for data mining using supercomputers. He is a long-time faculty member at the Institute for Humane Studies and the Foundation for Economic Education. Davies also recently worked as an associate producer for the Moving Picture Institute’s new video series, “FI$H: How an Economy Grows,” a free resource for K-12 education on economics.

    Davies’ presentation is sponsored by the Department of Economics.
  • Forensics Continues Early Season Success


    Truman’s forensic union (speech and debate team) continued its successful early season competition at the Bob R. Derryberry Memorial tournament, hosted Oct. 6-7 by Southwest Baptist University. The team brought home multiple awards, including five new national qualifications.
    In individual events speech, first-year Courtney Kopp placed sixth in dramatic interpretation. Audrey Baker, another first-year, placed fifth in the same category. First-year Maguire Radosevic placed fifth in extemporaneous speaking. Sophomore Austin Sopko advanced to finals of impromptu speaking and placed fifth. Sopko and Baker also competed in duo interpretation together, where they placed third. Each of these placings represents a national qualification to the National Forensic Association tournament in April.
    In addition to his success in speech, Radosevic advanced to the quarterfinal round of novice Lincoln-Douglas debate. He was also recognized as the third-best speaker in novice debate at the tournament.
    Truman forensics next turns its sights on the Missouri Mule and Dale Carnegie Invitational, Oct. 21-22, hosted by the University of Central Missouri.
    Participation in the forensics program is open to any Truman student in good standing, regardless of prior speech and debate experience.

  • Chinese Art Movement Featured in University Gallery

    “Retreat: Reflections on Chinese Apartment Art” will be on display in the University Art Gallery from Oct. 17-Nov. 30.

    In the last three decades of the 20th century, apartment art became an important way for Chinese artists to respond to conservative governmental policies that limited or even outlawed the creation and exhibition of contemporary art. This phenomenon took different forms, but in each case, artists and critics developed unique strategies to continue their practice despite political and economic barriers.

    This exhibition presents a video produced by graduate students at the University of Pittsburgh that features interviews with eight artists who participated in apartment art in the 1980s and 1990s in Chinese urban centers.

    Madeline Eschenburg, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Pittsburgh, will present “Chinese Apartment Art: Strategies for Creative Autonomy” at 5 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Art Gallery in Ophelia Parrish.



  • Kohlenberg Lyceum Series Begins with Big Band Performance


    The 2017-18 Kohlenberg Lyceum Series kicks off with the presentation of “American Rhapsody: The Gershwin Songbook,” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23 in Baldwin Auditorium.

    Under the instruction of Michael Andrew, The Gershwin Big Band pays tribute to George Gershwin through melodies that are just as fresh as they were in the Jazz Age. With works ranging from Broadway, Hollywood, opera and classic, Gershwin was tagged as one of the most indelible composers of the 20th century.

    The evening combines a 17-piece band to perform “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “The Man I Love” and many other time-honored Gershwin standards. With an incredible dynamic range and proclivity for swing and improvisation, the big band style is ideal for presenting the works of Gershwin, who influenced American music at a time when big band was becoming the definitive sound of pop.

    Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased at the cashier’s window, located on the first floor of McClain Hall, between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Tickets are also available online at lyceum.truman.edu or at Edna Campbells in downtown Kirksville. All tickets are $5.50 (includes tax).

  • Faculty Forum to Explore Color Theory

    The next Faculty Forum event will take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 24 in Baldwin Hall 102
    “Dialogues on Color” will be a presentation of Aaron Fine’s work on color theory resulting in a book of that title. This book, an inter-genre mixture of creative nonfiction, fiction and coloring book pages, is available to read free online, or purchase at cost, at www.arenotbooks.com.

    Providing an intellectual history of Western attitudes towards color, the organizing aim of the book is to reveal the ways cultural context shapes our theories of color, not excluding those we link to Newton’s work with the prism and think of as objective and universally true.

    For this presentation, Fine proposes to host a mixture of activities, mingling his own lecture style with staged readings done by theatre or debate club students in the voices of Newton, Goethe, Tom Sawyer and others. There will also be opportunities for the audience to color in their own color theory coloring book pages and to win a drawing for one of five complimentary copies of the book “Dialogues on Color.”
