As members of the Governors State University community, it is important that we all know what to expect of one another and how we make our shared values come to life every day. Our mission is not a static statement – it is what we live by. Any well-functioning community must have a set of values; this Handbook is meant to serve as a guide not only for our students, but also for faculty, staff, and administrators to ensure that all members of our community, are informed about policies, procedures, rights, and privileges.

Our Student Code of Conduct, along with other university policies, will give you clear guidance on both what you can expect from GSU faculty and staff and what we will expect from you. The Student Handbook also contains helpful information, guides, and directories that will make navigation of campus life easier.
