Governors State University officials applauded Illinois lawmakers for passing legislation that will partially fund Illinois public universities and colleges until a final budget for Fiscal Year 2017 is reached later this year.
The bipartisan bill allocates 12.7 million for FY17 to Governors State University. GSU will also be reimbursed $1.4 million for covering spring 2016 MAP funding for nearly 2000 GSU students.
