A Message from President Ronald M. Berkman

At Cleveland State University, student success is our highest priority. We’ve earned national recognition for award-winning programs that help our students save time and save money while earning a degree - and graduate fully prepared to excel in rewarding careers.

The secret of their success? We call it Engaged Learning.

This powerful combination of higher-education and real-world experience connects our students with unparalleled co-op and internship opportunities in technology, manufacturing, health care, finance, education, the arts and many other industries throughout Cleveland and beyond.

Now more than ever, students demand academic excellence, affordability and a demonstrable return on their investment in a college degree. You should settle for nothing less. And at CSU, you don’t have to.

With 17,000-plus students, nine colleges and more than 175 academic programs, CSU is listed year after year among America’s best universities by U.S. News & World Report. CSU ranks No. 1 in the nation for increases in research expenditures, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. And CSU is among the Top 3 public universities in Ohio whose graduates enjoy the greatest mid-career earnings boost, according to the Brookings Institution.

At CSU, you’ll be part of a dynamic community in the heart of downtown Cleveland that is home to a world-class faculty of scholars who are experts in their fields. Our campus has been reinvigorated by a $500 million makeover, and you’ll find that the city itself is a classroom where our partnerships across the private, public and nonprofit sectors are ready to enhance and to enrich your education.

Welcome to Cleveland State University!
