Welcome to "Why Not?"
What is "Why Not?"
"Why Not?" is a dynamic tool that allows students, faculty, staff, and community members to submit constructive suggestions and ideas about ways to improve Governors State University's processes, procedures, and policies. Constructive suggestions should:
- address improvements in the efficiency of a department, program, or procedure;
- improve services that support the university;
- eliminate unnecessary procedures or duplication of effort;
- save time, money, or materials; and
- contribute to the continuing growth and development of GSU.
Founded on the principle of new ideas, Governors State University will continue to grow with your help. Have a great idea? Ask "Why Not?" today and receive a guaranteed response and a reward!
Each contributor who submits a constructive suggestion to the "Why Not?" website will receive a participation reward, and will be eligible to win a Special Recognition reward.
Special Recognition Rewards. Each semester, one lucky "Why Not?" contributor will be recognized with a CA$H prize and a complimentary luncheon with GSU's President, Provost and other members of the administration!
