Ultimately, this led him to testify before Congress, become a nationally prominent author and found the investigative journalism group Tarbell.org. He will soon be announced as the president of the Business Initiative for Health Policy.

    Potter’s compelling personal story, understanding of midterm elections and insight about the future of the Medicare for All movement will be discussed.

  • The Athletics Department continues to be a leader among national, conference and state public institutions in the latest release of the NCAA Academic Success Rate data.

    Truman was named one of five NCAA Division II public schools nationally with an ASR of 88 percent or higher. That was also tops among the six public schools in the Great Lakes Valley Conference and the eight Division II public schools in the state of Missouri. Bulldog student-athletes were 40th out of 317 Division II schools, seventh out of 15 conference members and trailed only Rockhurst, Maryville and Drury in the state.

    Academic Success Rate is calculated by the NCAA and considers only student-athletes enrolled. The rate is typically more accurate than the federal graduation rate since it includes transfers, mid-year enrollees and non-scholarship student-athletes. The rate is recorded six years after initial collegiate enrollment.

    The national average for Division II schools was an ASR of 68 percent and all Truman sports had an ASR above the national average of their respective sport.

  • Spike is not the only bulldog on campus these days.

    Anyone passing through the mall in recent weeks has probably noticed the new bronze bulldog sculpture on the library patio. Through generous gifts from alumni and friends, the artwork was commissioned with Crandall Sculpture and Design.

    The artist, Brandon Crandall of Brashear, worked to create a piece of art that would be both visually stunning and create pride for every generation of bulldogs. The nearly six-month project included art sketches, feedback from a bulldog breeder, and Crandall’s signature process of building sculpture with foam, clay, and countless hours of design before the mold was built and sent to the foundry for bronzing and completion.

    After a quick turnaround from Eligius Bronze of Kansas City, the finished bulldog was installed in time for Homecoming 2018 and was unveiled during the dedication of the Roger J. Johnson Patio. The space was named in honor of Johnson, a longtime employee who retired from the Physical Plant in 2017 after 29 years of service.
