Special Feature on Community

Cleveland State University is growing up. Walk a block or two down Euclid Avenue and you will see the progress the university has made in a short time. All of it is part of CSU’s master plan.

By now, most students and faculty have seen the drawings. They see the construction of the real thing every day. But there is something missing, something no drawing or building can show.

What is missing is a community and it is the most important part of the master plan. For what good are buildings without people in them? It doesn’t matter how pretty a place is — if you have no one to share it with, you will not stay there long.

What is community exactly? Many definitions exist, but community is generally defined as a group of interacting people living in a common location. Those people tend to share similar intentions, beliefs, resources, needs and the community helps the individual define their own identity.

By that definition, CSU has already built a community. Students come to CSU with the intention of earning a degree, they share resources, they interact with each other and they identify with the university. (When people ask John what he does, he can rely on the university for an answer, “I’m a student at CSU!”)

Yes, CSU has a thriving community. But it will have to be nurtured if it is going to grow along with the master plan. Many issues will need to be addressed.

“What issues?” You ask.
