Governors State University is the only regional, public, comprehensive university in Chicago's south suburban area, serving approximately 7,750 students. GSU provides affordable and accessible undergraduate and graduate education to culturally and economically diverse students with undergraduate tuition that is the most affordable
in the state.

The campus, conveniently located in University Park, Illinois, is characterized by the quiet of its scenic 760 acre campus amidst vigorous suburban and business growth, towns of character and interest, along with Metra access to the vibrancy of the Chicago Loop, just 35 miles away. The campus and surrounding community enjoy the excellent cultural offerings of Governors State University's Center for Performing Arts, as well as its acclaimed Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park.

Governors State University is a great place to work.  We are now a four-year university,  and we need talented people like you to help us provide the best education.

At GSU you will find a community of people who look just like you – or nothing at all like you.  And that diversity is one of our strengths. Everybody is welcome here.

Our services are designed to foster effective and efficient use of campus human resources and to promote and support an environment where dignity, ethical conduct and diversity are valued, employee contributions are recognized and career development is encouraged.
