We are GovState: Governors State glows in Annual Report

Governors State University Annual Report 2023 Cover

University Park, IL – Governors State University (GovState) recently released its comprehensive annual report, further advancing President Cheryl Green’s goal to increase the university’s prominence and visibility.

“We Are GovState” is a 46-page digital snapshot of the institution’s milestones achieved in FY23 from students excelling in and out of the classroom, to exceptional faculty, to distinguished alumni.

Among the report highlights are stories from each of the university’s four colleges. The College of Arts and Sciences expanded efforts to amplify voices with the launch of the Center for Community Media.

The College of Business and its partners received one of the first ever National Science Foundation’s Regional Innovation Engines awards, while the College of Education took on a new identity, College of Education and Human Development, to better reflect its degree offerings and programs. 

Looking to lessen the financial burdens of students, the College of Health and Human Services’ Communication Disorders (CDIS) department hosted its first post-pandemic event and raised nearly $17,000 to fund CDIS scholarships.

In the President’s letter, Dr. Green expressed her pride in the university.

“We are proud of our many accomplishments and as we continue to navigate the known and unknown challenges of the future, please be assured that our commitment to educational excellence is unwavering!”

We Are GovState also looks toward investing in excellence across campus, including a Facilities Master Plan to guide future campus development and a Latinx Center to support the university’s rising Hispanic student enrollment. Other annual report highlights include awards, accreditations, and talking points for all in the GovState community who engage with potential students and donors.
