Employees and Students Safe
Cleveland State University’s campus sustained damage overnight Saturday from protests that spread throughout much of downtown. None of the students or staff on campus were injured and CSU Police were present to ensure their safety.
Four CSU buildings along Euclid Avenue sustained minimal damage, including broken windows and graffiti. CSU Facilities Services employees were on site Sunday morning to assess the damage and make needed repairs.
Until further notice, only designated essential employees should be on campus. Any students, faculty or staff on campus or in other areas of downtown are reminded to adhere to the City of Cleveland’s curfew, from noon Sunday to 8 a.m. Monday, and to shelter in place during that time. Any members of the CSU community downtown who have imminent concerns for their safety should call 911 or contact CSU Police at 216-687-2020.
“The safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is our most important priority,” said Cleveland State President Harlan Sands, who visited the campus this morning.
Cleveland State University is a public urban research university with an enrollment of more than 15,000 students and 1,200 faculty and staff.
