Vol. 26 No. 23 - February 21, 2022


  • Kirk Renovation to Enhance Student Support Services


    Truman will soon transform a campus landmark to bring together many student support services in one location.
    With financial assistance from the state of Missouri, Truman will renovate the Kirk Building to house a new Student Success Center. The center will employ a collaborative service model in which individual student service departments do not simply co-locate and deliver their services nearby to one another; but rather, work in coordination to meet students’ needs from entry to exit. The Student Success Center will be comprised of: the Career Center; Tutoring Services; the Student Health Center; Counseling Services; Student Access and Disability Services; the Center for Academic Excellence; the Communication Lab; and the Writing Center.
    In addition to housing the Student Success Center, the University will also use the updated facility to provide resources to the community, including workforce development outreach, rural telehealth counseling and academic outreach workshops.
    The Sustained Knowledge of Integrated Lifelong Learning Skills (SKILLS) Center will build upon the services of the departments in the Student Success Center, making key services available to the local community. While area K-12 students would have access to tutoring and advising, adult learners might seek skills to assist with career advancement through non-credit workshops on topics such as digital literacy, computer applications and personal development.  Truman students will have the opportunity to be trained to lead and support these community learning opportunities.
    The SKILLS Center will look to collaborate with relevant community partners including: the city of Kirksville, Adair County and other municipalities and counties in the northeast Missouri region; Kirksville Regional Economic Development, Inc., and other regional economic development entities; the Missouri Division of Employment Security; and regional health care and social service providers.
    The total estimated cost for the project is approximately $21 million. State support for the project comes in the form of $10.5 million through the American Rescue Plan Act that was recommended by Gov. Mike Parson during the State of the State address in January. The University plans to pursue grant funding and private donations to help meet its required portion of the funding.
    If funding is approved by the Missouri General Assembly, design for renovation of the building is slated to begin in August 2022 with completion projected by December 2024.
    Constructed in 1923, Kirk Building is named in honor of John R. Kirk, an alumnus and the second-longest tenured president in University history. For generations of alumni, it is remembered as the social center of campus since it was the site of games, assemblies and events.
  • Truman Offers New Scholarship for Summer Classes

    Eligible students taking summer classes through Truman can now receive $750.
    All students taking at least three credit hours toward an undergraduate degree will get an automatic $750 summer scholarship. No additional registration steps are required, and the scholarship will be directly credited to eligible students’ accounts. May graduates and new students for fall 2022 are not eligible for the scholarship, and it cannot be applied to interim courses.
    Registration for summer classes begins March 15. Summer is a great time for students to focus their attention on a challenging class, or work on boosting their GPA for scholarship renewal or graduate school applications. It is also an opportunity to make a lot of progress toward an additional major or minor without falling behind.
    One of the biggest advantages to taking summer classes through Truman is students know what they are getting. Courses from other institutions may not always cover the pre-requisite topics needed to be successful in subsequent Truman courses.
    The open course list for summer is now available in TruView with a variety of options for students, including online, hybrid and in-person delivery methods. The flexibility of summer courses provides students the opportunity to have a job, take a vacation or socialize with friends back home.
    With six separate terms throughout the summer, students have a variety of options to fit their needs. Interim classes run May 7-28. The first round of five-week courses, as well as 10-week courses, begin May 31, while the second round of five-week courses begins July 5. An eight-week session begins June 6. The August interim runs from July 30-Aug. 13. For more information visit summer.truman.edu.
  • Library Offers Digital Resources


    The library offers a variety of online services, including digital exhibits and digital library.

    The digital exhibits were created from photographs, art and artifacts from Special Collections and the E. M. Violette Museum Collections. Some exhibits focus on a single collection, while others weave together several collections to tell a story. A few of the available exhibits are “The Big Fire” and “Cabinet of Curiosities.” “The Big Fire” showcases information about the 1924 campus fire that destroyed Baldwin and Library Hall. “Cabinet of Curiosities” showcases objects that reflect the diversity of the natural and human worlds. All other exhibits can be viewed here.

    The digital library features digitized objects from the Pickler Memorial Library Special Collections and University Archives. These objects include manuscripts, photographs, vintage sheet music and other unique items. New items and collections will be added on a continuing basis. A few of the collections available now are “Truman State University: The Early Years” and “Experiences from the Civil War.” The rest of the collections can be found here.
