Beginning in 2022, a group of alumni will be selected each fall as Alumni Fellows. Sponsored by the Office of Advancement and the University’s five academic schools, the Alumni Fellows program recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves in their respective careers. The Alumni Fellows program is designed to enrich the Truman experience by exposing students to outstanding alumni who share extensive knowledge and real-world experience from their respective fields. Nominees must have distinguished themselves in their chosen profession, have made significant contributions to their community and demonstrated integrity in their personal lives.
To nominate an outstanding alumnus/alumnae, go online to truman.edu/alumni-donors/alumni-fellows.
Truman, in an effort to create new and meaningful ways to engage with a diverse and ever-growing Bulldog family, has established a new young alumni recognition program – The Echo 25.
The familiar name of the signature program originated with Truman’s former yearbook, “The Echo.” The 1960 edition of the University’s yearbook details the symbolism of echoes in the Truman Tradition: “Echoes repeat the notes of a student’s life. They resound the new progress, the new ideal, and the new decade of the Teachers College.” Similarly, the success of Truman’s young alumni echo a tradition of excellence across the University’s long history.
The Echo 25’s inaugural class will feature 25 exceptional alumni under the age of 40 who will be recognized at a ceremony in fall 2022. Candidates for the award must have earned an undergraduate or graduate degree from the University and be under the age of 40 by the announcement of winners in September 2022.
Recipients of The Echo 25 will be selected based on the ways they live out Truman’s characteristics of graduates. Truman graduates are creative, socially responsible leaders and engaged world citizens. They are responsible, informed and compassionate. They have the characteristics that enable them to be active, successful participants in their worlds.
Nominations for The Echo 25, can be made at truman.edu/alumni-donors/echo-25.
Nominations for the Alumni Fellows and The Echo 25 will open April 15 and are due by May 15.
The inaugural class of Truman Alumni Fellows and The Echo 25 will be welcomed back to campus Sept. 22-24. Both groups will be honored in conjunction with the Truman vs. Tiffin University football game.
