Cleveland State University Organization and Structure
The University is led by the President who oversees the Provost (Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs). The Provost, in turn, leads all academic activities within the University through the supervision of the Vice-Provosts (Faculty Affairs, Academic Planning, Academic Programs, and Student Affairs), Library Director, and Academic and College Deans. There are seven separate Colleges and one school – the Monte Ahuja College of Business, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS), College of Education and Human Services, Fenn College of Engineering, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, College of Sciences and Health Professions, Levin College of Urban Affairs, and the School of Nursing (see University organizational chart at http://www.csuohio.edu/offices/provost/orgchart.pdf).
Each of the eight Colleges/School provides distinct academic programming. The Ahuja College of Business includes six departments and offers undergraduate, masters, doctoral, and certificate programs (http://www.csuohio.edu/business/academics/); the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences includes nineteen schools, departments, and programs that offer undergraduate, masters, doctoral, and certificate programs (http://www.csuohio.edu/class/depts/); the College of Education and Human Services includes four academic departments that offer undergraduate, masters, doctoral, and certificate programs (http://www.csuohio.edu/cehs/departmentpeople/); the Fenn College of Engineering includes six academic departments that offer undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs (http://www.csuohio.edu/engineering/academics/departments.html); the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law offers Juris Doctor, masters degree/Juris Doctor (in five disciplines), and Master of Law degrees (https://www.law.csuohio.edu/academics); the College of Sciences and Health Professions includes six departments that offer undergraduate, masters, and doctoral degrees; the Levin College of Urban Affairs offers undergraduate, masters, and doctoral degrees (http://urban.csuohio.edu/academics/graduate/); and the School of Nursing offers undergraduate, graduate, certificate, and doctoral degrees (http://www.csuohio.edu/nursing/index.html).
College of Graduate Studies
The College of Graduate Studies is the students’ gateway to all graduate programs at the University (http://www.csuohio.edu/gradcollege/). Students interested in any University graduate program apply to the College of Graduate Studies and this information will be uniformly forwarded to the departments and schools of interest (http://www.csuohio.edu/gradcollege/programsnapsht/). Faculty who teach in their department or school’s graduate programs must be designated as a “graduate faculty” member (see “Graduate Faculty Membership”).
These Colleges, administrative building locations, and all other University locations can be found on the campus map (http://www.csuohio.edu/aboutcsu/campusmap.pdf). In recent years the University campus has been steadily growing and serving as a hub for redevelopment within downtown Cleveland. This process is guided by a long-range architectural plan that can be found at http://www.csuohio.edu/offices/architect/.
