In the fall, Governors State University honors its educators with Faculty Excellence Awards.
These awards honor the hard work and dedication of professors who work tirelessly to educate, guide, and inspire their students. Recipients are chosen based on student evaluations and department director and dean recommendations. It is a welcome honor because it publicly acknowledges the good work and effective teaching which goes on in the classroom during the school year.
