President Maimon Delivers President to Presidents Lecture at AASCU National Conference

Governors State University President Elaine P. Maimon was recently invited to present the 2019 President to Presidents speech at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) National Conference in Phoenix.

Her speech, “Where Are We Going?,” focused on the balance between “focus and peripheral vision” that she defined as necessary for universities in order for U.S. higher education to move forward. Using her own experiences and her work as co-founder of Writing Across the Curriculum as examples, Dr. Maimon encouraged the audience of fellow university presidents to show students with high potential a new future.

“AASCU institutions are way ahead in understanding that we prepare students for life, careers, and citizenship. Our communities will only be as strong as citizens make them,” Dr. Maimon said.
