Grant Supported Events (Intellectual Life Committee)

Intellectual Life Grants are awarded for up to $500 for events that promote and increase awareness of the arts, humanities and other intellectual topics of universal interest. These events include lecture series, faculty research salons, workshops, panel discussions, film screenings, exhibits, presentation in local communities and field trips.

The primary audience for these events is Governors State University students, although the events should be open to all members of the GSU community and the region.

GSU staff and faculty, as well as enrolled GSU students with a faculty collaborator, are invited to apply using the Intellectual Life Grant Application. Events must be promoted as sponsored by the GSU Intellectual Life Committee in addition to any other sponsors.

GSU View (University Newsletters)

GSU View is a newsletter published by the university since 2007 and delivered to GSU students and employees via email.

From August 2007-November 2013, monthly compilations of the newsletter were available on the former GSU website in a blog style format with the latest issue appearing at the top. These monthly compilations were downloaded, converted to PDF, and are part of this collection.

Outlook email files from March 3, 2008 onwards have been converted to PDF format for inclusion in this collection.

The current issue of the GSU View is posted at http://www.govst.edu/gsuview/

Phoenix (Student Newspapers)

Two years after the Innovator's last issue, Governors State University issued a new student newspaper in August 2002. The newspaper was named Phoenix by Robert Wysocki and the first logo (pictured above) was designed by Tom Forys. The newspaper features student reporting, opinions, news, and photos.

The PHOENIX is published twenty four times annually. We welcome articles, suggestions, photos, commentary, cartoons, and letters to the editor on issues that concern you or the GSU community. We reserve the right to edit submissions for clarity, legality, and interest to our GSU readership. All submissions must be credited, and include the submitor's full name, graduate status, and field of study.
