GSU, President Maimon Featured in Chicago Media
Great things are happening at GSU, and the local media is taking note. President Elaine Maimon was featured in the e-newsmagazine for an organization of Chicago’s most distinguished professional women. In a “Members in the News” segment The Chicago Network showcased the Crain’s Chicago Business article on Illinois public universities and GSU’s enrollment growth being a bright spot. The segment also included a photo of President Maimon and Jaxx at Convocation, and included a link to another Crain’s piece on Chicago-area MBA programs, where GSU stood out as the most affordable option in the region.
Meanwhile, the Chicago Citizen ran a story on GSU becoming a four-year university. President Maimon is quoted in this article as well, which also features Justin Smith, a member of the first class of GSU sophomores. Justin, who is president of the International Cultural Club, talks about his experiences as a freshman and how GSU gave him the opportunity to attend a four-year university.
Not to be outdone, our faculty and staff have also been making the news. Assistant Professor of Accounting, Finance, and Management Information Systems, William “Professor Fraud” Kresse, turned up on the WGN-TV Midday News on a segment offering safety tips for college students. He was also named the “#2 Accounting and Tax Professor on Twitter” by The Accounting Path, an informational website for the accounting field. Mary Ma, director of the Illinois SBDC International Trade Center at GSU, was featured in a Daily Herald article about how the Chinese currency devaluation affects local manufacturers.
