CSU Named a Top University for International Students

University receives Best Facilities Award from NAJAH

NAJAH, the annual higher education exhibition held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, has selected Cleveland State University as one of the top schools for international students. CSU won the Best Facilities category as part of NAJAH 2017’s Student Choice Awards. The honor is based on a survey of students and alumni of 162 universities around the world and highlights the efforts institutions are making to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all. CSU was one of only two American universities to be honored.

“CSU is dedicated to promoting educational opportunity and engaged learning for students from nations around the world and it is extremely gratifying to receive this positive recognition from our most important audience, our students,” says Donna Davisson, associate lecturer in CSU’s Monte Ahuja College of Business and leader of the CSU delegation to NAJAH 2017.

NAJAH is a three-day comprehensive event catered specifically for prospective university students, their parents and teachers. It hosts over 16,000 participants and features exhibits from over 160 colleges and universities representing 20 countries. The event is sponsored by the Abu Dhabi Education Council and the UAE Ministry of Education.

“Through a host of support programs, student organizations and events, Cleveland State seeks to provide a comprehensive educational and cultural experience for international students, allowing them to excel in their chosen careers,” adds Davisson. “NAJAH is an excellent opportunity to highlight the benefits of a CSU education, while also providing us with a better understanding of the specific needs of prospective students from the region.”
