Governors State University is rooted in academic excellence. True to our original mission, the university encourages open communication, diversity, and ongoing research and scholarship among students and faculty alike.
We're committed to helping you attain your educational goals. Whether you choose to study on campus, online, or via distance learning, you'll have access to our world-class faculty. Eighty-five percent hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their discipline, and all are active scholars who pursue knowledge and new ideas through real world experiences. Faculty diversity mirrors that of our students. As a student, you'll be assured a variety of perspectives and ideas.
As a student, you'll also benefit from the personal touch that our small class sizes offer. In most cases, our class size is less than 30 students, which means students get one-on-one attention from professors. They will encourage you to share your ideas in class and will welcome you into their offices to discuss assignments. Many faculty members act as mentors and advisors as well.
As a GSU student, your education comes first.
