- The origins of Harry S Truman College go back to 1956 when, in response to community interest in a public two-year college for the northeast section of the city, an evening college was opened at Amundsen High School. By 1961, this successful undertaking had moved to a former Chicago elementary school and was renamed Mayfair College, offering both day and evening classes to 4,000 students. Demand for large, more up-to-date quarters resulted in the construction of a new campus in the heart of Chicago's historic Uptown neighborhood, a location that serves the needs of a new population and is convenient to public transportation. The College was named after Harry S Truman, the nation's 33rd president, a lifelong advocate for public higher education.
- In 1995, more than 4,500 students were enrolled in the college's credit program. Another 30,000 plus students were enrolled in Truman's Adult Education, Continuing Education, Truman Technical Center, Lakeview Learning Center, and Truman Middle College (alternative high school) programs combined.
- The Truman College Adult Education Program is a comprehensive program of free classes for adult students. Adult Education classes help integrate students more fully into the community and workforce, as well as prepare them for further education. The program serves a population of more than 12,000 students each module at the Truman College campus, about 13 off-campus sites, and Lakeview Learning Center.
- Truman College is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools , Commission on Institutions of Higher Education and approved by the Illinois Community College Board, the Illinois Board of Higher Education and the Illinois State Board of Education.
