About the Center

The Truman Center anticipates being a link and a resource for all of its initiatives as well as a place where persons can connect in real time or electronically to explore the broad field of its charge: governmental affairs.

Lectures, symposia and seminars will look at issues related to our mission. Programs will focus on our initiatives.
