When you support Cleveland State University, you are helping to provide the Northeast Ohio workforce with talented graduates. The vast majority of CSU alumni remain in Northeast Ohio, boosting the local economy. And the University itself provides a significant boost to the Northeast Ohio economy.

The Economic Impact of Cleveland State University quantifies the economic impact from spending by the University, students and visitors to CSU during the 2013-2014 academic year. The report was authored by Candi Clouse, Ziona Austrian and Serena Alexander in the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs' Center for Economic Development.

"Since our founding 50 years ago Cleveland State has proven to be a strong investment for both students and the state of Ohio. The University generates significant returns for Northeast Ohio through career preparation for students as well as by providing well-paying jobs and by purchasing local services," said President Ronald M. Berkman.
