Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

Among Cleveland State University's greatest assets is the inclusive diversity of our campus community. I am writing to reaffirm CSU's unwavering commitment to providing a safe and welcoming campus for each and every one of you.

We appreciate, recognize and value the abilities, experiences, perspectives and talents of every member of the CSU community, and we are leveraging these strengths to elevate the entire University.

We are dedicated to developing strategies that build and nurture an inclusively diverse campus community to support the success of our students.

We stand firm on our zero tolerance policy for words or acts that constitute hate speech and condemn acts that violate the values and ideals that celebrate respecting every member of the CSU community.

Our Office for Institutional Equity is available to address any concerns you may have on this issue by contacting Mariah Vogelgesang, Interim Director at or calling 216.687.2223. You can also contact CSU's anonymous hotline at 888.837.1824.
