UNIVERSITY PARK, Ill. (Chicago Tribune) — Governors State University has named a new president.
The board of trustees voted to name Cheryl Green as the suburban Chicago’s sixth president. She’ll start July 1.
The Chicago Tribune reports Green will replace President Elaine Maimon who is retiring amid a payroll scandal that took place during her tenure.
Green worked for more than twenty years at Chicago State University.
Students and faculty at GSU wanted to oust Maimon earlier this year after a state investigator’s report in December showed that 33 people had been fired from the university but kept on collecting their full salaries and benefits.
