The gift was recognized as part of ENGAGE: The Campaign for Cleveland State University, CSU’s first-ever campaign. This $100 million effort to support student success helps to enable our students to stay in school and graduate, better-equipped to achieve their aspirations and make meaningful contributions to their communities.
