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 programs dedicated 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 that 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.
On Thursday, April 22, Truman State University will hold the 2021 Student Research Conference. This conference is a University-wide celebration of student research, scholarship, and creative achievement. Both undergraduate and graduate students are invited to submit abstracts.
This year the Student Research Conference will be held as a hybrid event. Asynchronous virtual oral, poster, performance art, and studio art presentations and a limited number of face-to-face oral presentations will be facilitated. Abstracts are due Tuesday, March 16 by 5:00 pm.
