Welcome the New Dean of the College of Business, Dr. Sonia Dalmia Sonia-1

Hello Everyone! As the newly appointed Dean of Governors State University's College of Business, I'm absolutely ecstatic! This university has accomplished incredible things, and I aim to take us even higher. Throughout my 24-year journey in higher education, I have come to appreciate great teaching methods and adaptability as essential attributes in meeting changing global demands.

Thank you to all our faculty and staff - you're the stars behind our success! I can't wait to join forces in elevating our college.

Students, you are the heart of what we do! My mission? Supporting and nurturing your dreams while equipping you for the business world. Let's chat - I am eager to hear what you have to say.

Alums, we are so very proud of you. Let's connect, expand our network, and provide support on both ends.

Dear Business Partners and Community: I look forward to learning from you and exploring ways we can drive change together and make a real, impactful difference in the lives around us.

Looking forward, I envision our college as a hub of new ideas, diverse voices, and significant impacts. As we shape its future together, I would love to hear from you as we embark on this exciting journey together! Visit or send a note; let's embark on it together!

Growing up in a military family in India meant frequent moves and schools; this inspired my love of travel and teamwork. Today I'm married to AI expert Arun, and together, we have two kids: one at USC studying marketing, while the other studies Data Science at the University of Michigan.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I am looking forward to experiencing all that fall energy on campus. Go Jaguars!
