CSU Learning Communities

A Look at Past Learning Communities


Learning Communities at Cleveland State University were first offered in Fall 2007 through a Title III Grant from the US Department of Education with the goal of developing Learning Communities that would best support CSU and its first-year students.

With new themes offered each semester, the Learning Communities have proven beneficial for our students. Students who have participated in CSU Learning Communities have:

  • A higher retention rate than their counterparts.
  • A higher GPA than their counter parts.
  • A strong foundation for their college career.
