Truman State University offers activities and programming that provide opportunities for students to get involved and to explore different cultures.
Through a series of workshops, lectures, seminars, and activities, Truman assists students in understanding various forms of diversity and the importance of differences within a democratic society. For the Art and Science of Inclusivity Incentive Program, Truman students may attend a minimum number of 12 events over the course of the semester and write a short reflection on their experiences to earn a Certificate of Inclusivity. This program is designed to help widen student awareness on issues affecting others and to get students involved in events on campus.
The Multicultural Affairs Center offers grants and hosts events that promote cultural understanding across campus, including Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, and Asian American Heritage Month, just to name a few.
