Office of Advancement
The Office of Advancement at Truman State
University is responsible for building greater awareness, understanding, and
appreciation of the University among its publics through:
Alumni relations efforts promote lifelong
relationships between alumni and their alma mater through a program of
ongoing communications, activities, and services to serve the interests
of Truman’s alumni population. The University’s alumni records are
maintained by the Advancement Office.
The public relations side manages news and
information to raise awareness of the University. Some of the primary
public relations duties include developing news articles and press
releases, assisting with media interviews and press conferences, and
connecting media with University experts.
The fundraising component of the Advancement
Office encourages private gifts to support the University including
contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations. The
Advancement Office plays a critical role in the cultivation and
stewardship of fundraising activities and serves as the home base for
Truman State University Foundation.
