  • Truman Celebrates 25 Years at No. 1


    Truman has reached a milestone after being recognized as the No. 1 public school in the Midwest Region for the 25th consecutive year according to U.S. News & World Report.

    In the 2022 Best Colleges rankings, Truman came in at No. 6 overall among both public and private institutions in the Midwest Region, an improvement of one spot from last year. In addition to being the No. 1 public university in the region, Truman was the only Missouri public school in the top 70 spots.

    Truman secured an additional No. 1 award on the Best Value Schools rankings. Among both public and private schools, Truman was again tops in the Midwest Region in terms of affordability. It was the only Missouri public school included in the top 50 spots.

    “Twenty-five years as the top public Midwest Region university is a spectacular accomplishment and a true testament to the sustained excellence exhibited by every member of our campus community,” University President Susan L. Thomas said. “Truman provides an exceptional education that prepares our students to thrive both professionally and personally. Our students graduate at high rates with low debt, ready to make a profound impact on the world. We have consistently ensured our students realize the full promise of higher education.”

    Among this year’s supplemental rankings, Truman was again recognized on the list of Best Undergraduate Teaching, coming in as the No. 1 public university, No. 8 overall, in the Midwest Region. Of the 24 schools listed, Truman was the only Missouri institution, and the highest ranked of the four public schools to be honored.

    Truman earned a spot on the list of Most Innovative Schools, which recognizes institutions making improvements toward curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology and facilities. Truman was the lone Missouri university to make this particular list of 17 schools. Of the two public institutions, Truman was the highest rated, coming in tied for No. 12 overall in the Midwest Region.

    Three Truman undergraduate programs also earned recognition on stand-alone lists compiled by U.S. News & World Report. The computer science, nursing and business programs all met selective criteria which led to their inclusion on three respective lists.

    U.S. News & World Report bases its rankings on several indicators of academic excellence, including graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, assessment by peers, financial resources, student excellence and alumni giving. Complete listings are available at usnews.com/colleges.
  • Expanded Services Part of a Strong Focus on Mental Health at Truman


    With a new school year under way, students now have access to expanded physical and mental health care services.

    Since March, operations of both the Student Health Center and University Counseling Services have been under the direction of Complete Family Medicine. As a subsidiary of Hannibal Regional Healthcare System, this non-profit agency has the capacity to provide additional resources to students, including expanded hours, increased access to a physician and access to off-site providers when needed. Weekly appointments are also now available at UCS.

    Currently, the staff available during the school year includes three full-time on-campus counselors, two part-time on-campus counselors and one virtual counselor. By the end of October, there will be a total of four full-time on-campus counselors and three virtual counselors.

    Students seeking services through the Student Health Center or University Counseling Services will have the option to handle their care through private insurance, Medicaid, Veterans Affairs benefits or private payments. As a non-profit entity, equitable care is a priority for Complete Family Medicine. Because it is part of a larger network with experience in multiple facets of health care, it can provide services on a sliding scale.

    Services are available year around. During the school year, hours of operations are from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Students can contact the Student Health Center at 660.785.4182 and UCS at 660.785.4014 or ucs@cfmcares. While Complete Family Medicine is also responsible for the urgent care facility in Kirksville, students are advised to seek treatment first at the Student Health Center during its hours of operation. More information regarding Complete Family Medicine can be found at cfmcares.com.

    Also starting last spring, Truman began a partnership with emotional well-being provider LifeWorks, which offers 24/7 access to resources specifically for students in higher education. Through its My Student Support Program (MySSP), students can seek resources in a variety of platforms, including live online chats and video counseling. Services are also offered by appointment in other languages, depending on availability. Appointments with counselors who share the student’s lived experiences, such as racial and gender identity, are available as well. The My SSP app also offers self-directed resources, including videos and articles on topics such as scholarly stress, combating homesickness and thriving as a student. My SSP provides short-term, solution-focused counseling delivered by degree-qualified clinicians. If a student is in need of additional support, MySSP can help refer them to the proper resource.

    For the past several years, Truman has prioritized its approach to student wellness. Some of the steps the University has taken include the creation of the Truman Wellness website, available at wellness.truman.edu. The site serves as a resource for communicating a campus-wide commitment to wellness and a culture of caring.

    Truman faculty members have played an important role in the strategic planning of the University’s wellness approach. Many have participated in workshops and other developmental opportunities for mental health and well-being. There has also been a faculty fellows position created for mental health, as well as a student award for faculty members who are champions of mental health.

    Academically speaking, Truman has adjusted policies around dropping and adding courses to help alleviate student stress. The leave of absence policy was also altered to provide students with the opportunity to be absent from the University for up to two full semesters while retaining their status as students, minimizing the impact on any Truman-funded financial assistance they may receive. The University has also restructured its Student Success Center to assist students early on in their careers. The Bulldog Bounceback Program, established to help academically at-risk students, is yet another proactive measure to reduce stress and contribute to positive mental health.

    A number of social measures have been taken, among them the life skills workshops for students and the Positive Peers support program to combat loneliness and isolation. Truman’s You Matter campaign is another avenue to provide information about mental health resources and create a culture of caring across campus. Events such as Truman Week are designed to help students feel at home and integrated into the community as soon as they arrive on campus. Truman also has support programs in place for LGBTQ+ students, students of color, first-generation students, international students, commuter students, transfer students, students with disabilities, neurodiverse students, students diagnosed with mental illnesses and survivors of gender-based violence.

    Students are encouraged to visit wellness.truman.edu for more information on resources available for their physical and mental needs. The Student Health Center and UCS websites – available respectively at studenthealth.truman.edu and ucs.truman.edu – also provide more in-depth details about services available to all students.

  • Workshops for New Blackboard Tool Now Available for Faculty


    The new Blackboard tool, Ally, will be officially activated in all spring 2022 courses on the first day of winter interim but it is available now for faculty to enable on a volunteer basis. So far, 19 instructors have been trained and 58 courses have been enabled with Ally.

    Both faculty and students will benefit from this tool. Faculty will have the ability to perform accessibility checks on course content and edit materials posted in Blackboard that need improvement. Students will have the ability to choose from several course content formats such as MP3 text-to-speech, e-reader supported files and Beeline Reader files which help readers keep track of their place in text.

    Training sessions for faculty have begun and will continue through October. Faculty that would like to take advantage of these workshops can find the schedule and registration form here. Preregistration is required so that Ally can be enabled in participants courses to provide guided training. Other helpful links are Learning Technology’s support web page, which can also help answer any questions.


  • Seating Charts Make Contact Tracing Easier


    In their weekly discussion, the Faculty Senate COVID-19 Working Group committee – comprised of faculty members Scott Alberts, Nancy Daley-Moore and Christine Harker, and joined this week by student Madison Fitzgerald-Ingerman – discussed the surveys conducted last week by the University and Faculty Senate. The surveys closed Sept. 10, and data from both will be taken into consideration as the University reexamines the mask policy. The group also discussed the importance of faculty members maintaining seating charts for classes, and students being aware of who sits around them, in the event that contact tracing becomes necessary.

  • A Thank You from the Truman Week Committee

    As the semester has gotten off to a great start, and everyone is excited about being back on campus together, we wanted to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude for all of those who contributed to making Truman Week such a great success. The Truman Week planning committee: Ben Briney (before his departure from Truman), Zac Burden, Michael Facey, Shari Foglesong, Richie Howell, Liz Jorn, Andrea Maag, Jessica Rood (SAB student rep) and Jesse Wren (Student Government student rep). Honorary committee members were the intramurals staff and SAB for their work to coordinate all the social activities and make sure students had fun after a long day.
    The committee members worked hard to make a lot of things happen, however there are countless others who were essential to Truman Week’s success. The week could not have happened without (in no particular order):
    • The move-in committee and Residence Life getting everyone settled and ready to start the week,
    • Faculty members who are teaching Self and Society Seminars,
    • The Symposium Committee for bringing Diana Kander as the Truman Lecturer,
    • Student Government Leadership (Shania Montufar, Ethan Kershaw and others) for their work with commuter students and all kinds of other support,
    • Tammy Roberts and Beth Oberman in IT for making it possible for students to have digital schedules they could pull up on their mobile device,
    • Randy Bame and his staff in Baldwin for managing an unspeakable schedule for the auditorium
    • Laura Bates, Corrina McFall and Rebecca Conover and the U&I Student staff for making sure facilities were ready to go and equipment was working and doing anything that was asked of them,
    • The drumline and Michael Bump for upping the level of excitement as we headed into convocation,
    • Teresa Wheeler for making an awesome poster for some key events, and Katie Best for designing convocation programs,
    • The intramural staff from the Rec and SAB for all the evening social events.
    • The Physical Plant staff and the volunteers who worked the two weeks before to make sure campus looked as good as it possibly could, and the stages and outdoor spaces were ready when we needed them,
    • Everyone and anyone who sponsored a scavenger hunt event or an information session, served at a picnic., etc.
    • The student employees in the Student Life Office who folded letters, added tassels and stuffed envelopes for Convocation,
    • Volunteers who popped up spur of the moment and found themselves saying “yes” when asked to help with a task.
    • And anyone we may have inadvertently overlooked adding to the list.
    We express our most sincere appreciation for all that you do to help our students enter and acclimate to the University during these five important days! They may think it looks easy because all of you work to make it look that way. What a fun week!  
    With gratitude,
    Brittany Hagenhoff, professor of chemistry
    Janna Stoskopf, dean of student life
    Truman Week Committee co-chairs
