Our Mission

​​​​​​​The Division of Continuing and Extended Education at Cleveland State University will play a role in helping transform our regional economy by providing communities access to high-quality information and education resources designed to create a more knowledgeable and skilled workforce.

Guiding Principles

  • Economic inclusion for CSU’s local and regional community is a driving force behind each of the Divisions three branches: lifelong learning, workforce development, and new knowledge & engagement.
  • Continuing education should be dynamic, flexible, and modifiable to accommodate changing situations, trends and labor market needs.
  • Continuing education will adhere to CSU’s inclusion and diversity priorities, strategic priorities, and workforce development priorities.

  • Continuing education should be available to all. The most effective way to ensure availability is to use multiple delivery methods including eLearning and community based programs as well as on-campus.
