The Truman Alumni Association’s mission is to foster and strengthen lifelong relationships between its remarkable alumni and friends. In order to achieve this mission, the Association recently adopted a five-year strategic plan. Among the top priorities are elevating diversity, equity and inclusion, defining the value of membership in Truman alumni chapters and using metrics to track progress on key priority areas. In the coming years, this plan will guide leaders and shape the way the Association develops events, communications and opportunities to better fit the needs of alumni and friends.
The strategic plan was designed to create a shared vision around three succinct strategies.
Strategic Priority #1
Connect alumni to each other
The Association will work to create social and professional connections through alumni chapters and clubs as well as less formal groups of alumni, such as former members of campus organizations.
Strategic Priority #2
Connect alumni to the University
For many, the Alumni Office is the primary connection back to campus. The Alumni Association will partner with campus offices to strengthen relationships, support students and foster lifelong learning.
Strategic Priority #3
Connect others to the University
Alumni are Truman’s best ambassadors. The Alumni Association will provide opportunities for alumni to recruit and retain future Bulldogs and to champion Truman spirit around the world.
Over the next five years, these strategies will provide a roadmap for alumni programming and communications to strengthen the connection of alumni to one another and to their alma mater.
