The Division of Continuing and Extended Education 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 research and development.
- Continuing education should be dynamic, flexible, and modifiable to accommodate changing situations, trends, labor market needs, and responsibilities defined by Cleveland State University executive leadership.
- 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.
