The Student Union Building was originally completed October 20, 1967 with the intent of bringing the University community together by providing facilities where student-based activities could take place. While it has continued to maintain this distinct purpose through the years, the Student Union Building has also grown and expanded along with Truman to fulfill emerging student needs.

Although the exterior has remained mostly the same, the inside of the Student Union Building has experienced many changes throughout the years. Major renovations in 1986, 1990, 1994, 2006 and 2016 have altered the layout and aesthetic of the interior of the building.

The 2006 renovation brought changes such as: the conversion of the Quiet Lounge to the HUB, including a new passenger elevator, staircase and seating; the addition of the south entrance on the first floor; the creation of the SUB Down Under venue; and restrooms on the main floor.

Other main modifications have included the expansion of the University Bookstore (1986), the renovation of the Snack Bar now known as the Mainstreet Market (1990), and removal of the bowling lanes on the lower level (1991).

Mainstreet Market was revamped during the latest renovation and now features Chick-fil-A, Slice of Life, Wholly Habaneros, Mein Bowl and Hissho Sushi.

Come see Guest Speaker and Truman Alumni Cory Hudson on Thursday March 17th!

Over zoom at 7 pm

Dr. Corey Hudson (Sandia National Laboratories) discusses the way his personal journey in science has developed in the context of doing high consequence research for the US Department of Energy. His work started as a postdoc involved in projects as disparate as identifying industrially relevant enzymes for biomanufacturing, sequencing and assembling the genomes of antibiotic resistant bacterial and studying their evolution, and building databases of mobile genetic elements. As a staff member he had the opportunity to serve as lab coordinator and government liaison for the Sierra Leone Ebola response effort, helped develop new software and algorithms for synthetic biology, and helped build a field called “Digital Biosecurity.” Since becoming a manager, Dr. Hudson has built a research portfolio around modeling carbon capture by soils, protecting vaccine production facilities, and using high performance computing for antibody design. National laboratories are a unique place for researchers who are extremely curious and deeply interested in working in big problem areas. Because of the kind of work at national labs, projects are often in extremely high risk and high reward areas, and the work is like academics. In addition, researchers also get to transition technologies from a really early stage to active use, similar to the work of industrial scientists. In just over a decade, Dr. Hudson has engaged in research spanning topics related to global issues in public health, climate change, and biosecurity.

NEPC is seeking seven (7) summer interns in our Boston office (or virtually) who are currently pursuing their MBA or Master’s degree preferably in Finance or Economics. Projects assignments are available on our Healthcare Consulting, Private Equity Research, Marketable Equities Research, Diverse Manager Research, Portfolio Construction and Operational Due Diligence teams.

Upon successful completion of the internship, interns may be invited back to participate in a Sr. Investment Associate Rotational Program lasting up to 2 years (4 rotations) post-graduation. This is a program that NEPC has designed specifically to attract diverse candidates and give them broad exposure to different areas of the firm. Associates will cycle through different departments to gain exposure and experience. Successful Sr. Investment Associates will be placed in a permanent assignment within the firm over a 12-24-month cycle.

Internship Requirements:

We are seeking candidates who have already had some exposure to the investment industry either through a permanent position or prior internship. The ideal candidate should have a strong analytical skillset, excellent written and verbal communication skills and a working knowledge of Microsoft Office (Excel, Word, PowerPoint), close attention to detail and a willingness to learn. The candidate should be working toward an MBA or Master’s degree ideally majoring in Finance or Economics.


We have 4 open positions for Academic Coaches, which requires traveling to target high schools (in University vehicles) for afterschool weekly meetings to provide tutoring and mentoring. Truman students travel in teams to provide services. We pay $11/hour. We hope to fill these position ASAP.

We have vacant positions Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoons. Travel is typically 2:30-6pm, give or take a half hour depending on the distance needed to travel to get to the high school. A typical shift is 4-4.5 hours. There may also be a chance to work additional hours doing general office and clerical work for applicants who are interested.

What is Upward Bound?
Truman State University’s Upward Bound Project (UB) is a federal TRIO program designed to assist students who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education (e.g., first in their family to earn a college degree, from income-eligible backgrounds). Our mission is to foster the development of necessary academic skills and personal motivation in eligible students to increase the rate at which students enter and complete postsecondary education. Upward Bound’s vision is to empower and provide opportunities for all students to reach their full potential, positively impacting their families and communities with the shared values of education, growth, integrity, respect and responsibility. This vision is realized by the delivery of intensive services to participants at target schools in six Northeast Missouri counties on a year-round basis from the sophomore through the senior years in high school. Project participants meet after school weekly during the academic year and complete a college-preparatory summer academy on Truman’s campus each summer.

Here is a link to a short promotional video about our program that gives a good overview of the kind of things we do
