Governors State University is the only regional, public, comprehensive university in
Chicago's south suburban area, serving approximately 7,750 students. GSU provides affordable and accessible undergraduate and graduate education to culturally and economically diverse students with undergraduate tuition that is the most affordable
in the state.
The campus, conveniently located in University Park, Illinois, is characterized by the quiet
of its scenic 760 acre campus amidst vigorous suburban and business growth, towns of character and interest, along with Metra access to the vibrancy of the Chicago Loop,
35 miles away. The campus and surrounding community enjoy the excellent cultural offerings
of Governors State University's Center for Performing Arts, as well as its acclaimed Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park.
Governors State University is a great place to work. As we welcome our first freshman
class and become a four-year university, we need talented people like you.
At GSU you’ll find a community of people who look just like you – or nothing at all like you. And that diversity is one of our strengths. Everybody is welcome here. In fact, why not meet one of them now. Nancy Maurer was voted our Employee of the Year.

Specific areas of responsibility strategy and policy development, human resources information system, classification and compensation, employment services, salary and wage administration, staff development
