President Harry S. Truman - Namesake of Truman State University

On June 15, 1995, coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the mission change to a statewide university, Gov. Mel Carnahan signed into law Senate Bill 340 that changed the University's name from Northeast Missouri State University to Truman State University, giving the University a name that complements its statewide mission and allowing the University to honor Harry S. Truman, the only Missourian to serve as the President of the United States.
