Cleveland State University: New Attitudes, New Experiences, New Outlooks
Cleveland State is a metropolitan university that provides a rich environment for engaged learning in an exciting and dynamic location. The students are fond of claiming that the entire city is their campus for study, practical experience, and recreation. And the pledge to each student is an engaged learning experience in the real world, for the real world, among a diverse student body.

A Campus Rich in Tradition
Cleveland State was established as a state university in 1964 and has continued to grow since. Today, more than 1,000 courses support 200 major fields of study at the bachelor, master, doctoral, and law degree levels, as well as professional certificate and continuing education programs. As nearly 90 percent of Cleveland State's students work full- or part-time, flexible academic programming and convenient class times are offered. Of Cleveland State's 16,000 students, approximately one third are in graduate-level programs and about half attend on a part-time basis.

Courses of instruction leading to degrees are offered in six undergraduate colleges: the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences; the Nance College of Business Administration; the Fenn College of Engineering; the College of Education and Human Services; the College of Science; and the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs; as well as the College of Graduate Studies and Research, and the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.

Cleveland State now has extended campuses in Westlake and in Solon, where students have access to the same quality education as they have downtown.

A Dynamic Campus Environment
The Cleveland State campus consists of 85 acres - the largest footprint in downtown Cleveland - with 40 buildings used for teaching, research, housing, administration, and recreation. Nineteen-story Rhodes Tower houses the University Library, classrooms, and many faculty offices, and is a striking feature on the Cleveland skyline. University buildings feature a blend of old and new architectural styles, with historic landmark Mather Mansion sharing the stage with such modern facilities as the Levin College of Urban Affairs and the 13,000-seat Wolstein Center. "Building Blocks for the Future," the University's $500-plus million campus master plan, is changing the face of both campus and downtown Cleveland while creating a vibrant living and learning community in the heart of the city. New or renovated buildings include a recreation center; apartment-style student housing, a restaurant, an administration center, a College of Graduate Studies building, a new student center and the first-ever home for the College of Education and Human Services.

The University boasts more than 150 student organizations, including 13 national fraternities and sororities and 17 NCAA Division I varsity sports: men's baseball, basketball, fencing, golf, soccer, swimming, wrestling and tennis; and women's basketball, cross-country, fencing, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, volleyball and golf.

Exceptional Students, Award-Winning Faculty, Proud Alumni
Cleveland State is reaching out to academically talented and highly motivated students through its first Honors Program. Cleveland State's faculty is tops, too, with more than 93 percent holding the doctorate or other highest degree in their field. Four out of five hold the Ph.D., a figure unmatched by any other Ohio university. In 2005-06, CSU ranked first in Ohio and second in the nation for faculty winning the prestigious Fulbright Scholar Award. Students frequently comment on faculty ability, approachability, and sincere desire to help the student in every way they can.

Cleveland State University boasts more than 100,000 alumni, most of whom have remained in the Northeast Ohio area to work, give back to the community, and raise their families. Recent research shows that at nearly 1,000 businesses across the country, a Cleveland State graduate is at the helm as founder, chairman, CEO, president, or top executive. That's great company to keep!

Why join CSU?
You will enjoy a beautiful urban campus setting with diverse student population close to all the attractions that downtown Cleveland has to offer. In addition to a competitive salary, Cleveland State University offers an outstanding benefit package to full-time faculty and staff that includes medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance as well as tuition assistance.

Cleveland State University was recognized in 2010 as a NorthCoast 99 winner. This award is an annual recognition program that honors the top workplaces for talent in Northeast Ohio.
