President Maimon Elected to Second Term on ACE Board

GSU President Elaine Maimon has been elected to a second, three-year term on the Board of Directors for the American Council on Education (ACE), which represents nearly 2,000 college and university presidents and executives as the major coordinating body for the nation’s colleges and universities.

The organization has twice recognized Dr. Maimon, as well as Governors State for leadership. In 2014, ACE honored Dr. Maimon with the Donna Shavlik Award for Women’s Leadership in Higher Education. A year later GSU won the ACE/Fidelity Investment Award for Institutional Transformation.

President Maimon's term expires in 2022. She said she's honored to work with ACE while advancing GSU's mission. "Service on this Board provides opportunities on a national level to support GSU’s core values, as expressed in ACE’s vision of ‘a vibrant democratic society that relies on postsecondary education to expand knowledge, equity, and social progress.’ ”
