Office of Student Research
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.
