Unleash the Leader in You - for more information on how to become the leader you seek to be, contact any of the friendly staff in Student Life.

The mission of the Office of Student Life is to support and enrich the Governors State University educational experience through student involvement in its programs, student organizations and services. Emphasis is placed upon disseminating material and implementing initiatives which provide opportunities and information for students to realize lifelong learning skills. Wellness, fitness, recreation, leadership, volunteerism, governance, media and ethnic cultural observances are integral parts of Student Life events.

The staff strives to empower students through interaction in self-initiated or planned activities with fellow students, faculty members and staff. Student Life is based on principles in which the campus climate respects the rights of individuals and groups, encourages student success and ensures outlets for personal and professional development.
