Dr. Laura Bloomberg was appointed the eighth president of Cleveland State University (CSU) in the spring of 2022. She had previously served at CSU as provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, starting in the fall of 2021. Since being appointed university president, she has guided strategic initiatives that support CSU’s ability to create an academic community in which everyone can thrive and enrich the surrounding region.
These initiatives include:
- a new division of Student Belonging and Success, prioritizing personal connections as part of the student experience and a critical element of academic growth and achievement;
- a campus master plan, which would renovate CSU’s downtown campus and further integrate it into the city of Cleveland; and
- a university rebranding to share the message "We are Cleveland State University."
