consultation with the Kresge Foundation, the Kresge Institute Steering
Committee at Governors State has determined that the most beneficial way for our community college and university colleagues
to successfully build partnerships is to start with a broader-based, more
introductory overview / approach.
we have decided to postpone the first Kresge Institute to June of 2019.
However, we invite anyone from your
institution who wishes to travel to GSU to participate in a one-day schedule of
activities, free of charge, on Monday, June 4.

work cordially and collegially with community college partners to illuminate pathways
