Welcome to Cleveland State University! Located in the heart of downtown Cleveland, where the "City is Our Campus!" Our students have the unique opportunity to engage in learning with over 175+ degree programs and 3,000+ internship/co-op partnerships to utilize the city as a forefront of education. Cleveland State University is an anchor institution that is committed to the metropolitan community and region we serve. One of our most distinguishing qualities to enhance the community is through Diversity, Equity and Inclusion!  Diversity is not an aspiration or a brand but simply who we are!
