Office of Student Research
Truman provides many different venues for both undergraduate and graduate students to participate in original research, whether classroom based or faculty-directed research projects. There are also several summer research programsdedicated to fostering student research such as the McNair Program and the TruScholars Program. In addition, a student who is research-oriented or who plans to seek advanced training in his or her field may develop a research program which culminates in a research project with professors such as a capstone project. Truman students have published their research findings in national journals, presented at professional conferences, and participated in Truman’s annual Student Research Conference.
Congratulations to Professor Sal Costa for being named the Research Mentor of the Year for 2015. Thanks to Professor Costa for all his hard work and dedication to our student researchers.
In some majors you can receive academic credit for conducting research. In others, research is imbedded into the curriculum. Please ask a faculty member in your major or the department research pages below for more information.
Faculty may be looking for students to join their research teams. Look on TruPositions and search for “research”.
