Location: 500 W. Us Highway 24 Independence MO 64050 USA
Programs: President Truman knew that the health of our democracy is fundamentally tied to our understanding of history and government. Yet, recent studies show that students are failing to grasp the significance of people, places and events in history. The programs and resources offered by the Truman Library Institute seek to significantly raise the level of student achievement in this vital area of study, and to support teachers’ mastery of their subject areas with access to leading scholars, primary source materials, and best practices in teaching. Beyond the classroom, these programs inspire young people to seek lives of engaged service and purpose, as modeled by America’s 33rd president.
