A Message to the Campus Community

Cleveland State University values diversity, inclusion and its proud history of making our campus welcoming to everyone. Diversity of backgrounds, experiences and viewpoints on campus strengthens the intellectual life of our institution, enhances academic innovation and enables us to produce better leaders. Transgender students, staff, faculty and colleagues are a valued contribution to our campus.

CSU is committed to supporting and protecting transgender people on campus. Among other things, this commitment means that members of our community are free to use a restroom that aligns with their gender identity. Gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation are all protected under the University’s Discrimination/Harassment Policy. The CSU Office for Institutional Equity (OIE) vigorously enforces this Policy by investigating and resolving complaints of unlawful discrimination, harassment and sexual violence. Information about OIE can be found here: OIE is located in Room 236 of the Administration Center, 2300 Euclid Avenue, and can be reached by telephone at: 216-687-2223.

CSU campus partners work to ensure that our community fosters safety, civility and respect, and support, including through counseling and confidential resources, those in need. A list of these partners is available here:
