Impact: Why Future Support is Needed

Your Support Pays Dividends

Financial support from alumni, friends and other private sources helps Cleveland State University provide deserving students with scholarships and engaged learning opportunities. Your support is an investment that pays dividends by transforming students' lives through education.

We're proud to say that more and more of the best and brightest students are choosing to attend CSU, saying "yes" to excellent education, convenience, affordability and opportunity. In fact, for the past two years the average ACT test score for incoming students has exceeded the national average.

And when they graduate, the vast majority of alumni remain in Northeast Ohio, putting their education to use for the good of this region and significantly impacting the economy.

A forward-thinking urban university, Cleveland State is bringing new life to the city. A vibrant campus, highlighted by a new Student Center, Euclid Commons residence hall complex and a Recreation Center, is creating energy. An arts campus in PlayhouseSquare which enables our theater and dance students to perform in the Allen Theatre and development of a Campus Village north of Chester Avenue are key components in CSU's ongoing commitment to building a downtown neighborhood.

It is indeed an exciting time for the University – and for our students. We invite you show your pride and support for Cleveland State University by making a gift today. For additional information, please call 216.523.7277 or visit
