A Message from the President 

To Our Alumni and Friends:

As the new president of Cleveland State University, I am deeply grateful for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lead this best-in-class urban research university.

I have quickly learned that one of CSU’s greatest assets is its strong partnerships with alumni and friends who truly care about the University and our students. Graduates and donors who are ambassadors for the University, role models for our students, and believers in the hope and promise of Cleveland State have helped this University mature into a vibrant and respected institution.

Your support – whether for scholarships, faculty research, academic programs or other needs – is an investment in the future of Cleveland State University, our students and Northeast Ohio. CSU students are the future of this region and your support helps them stay in school, graduate and use their knowledge and skills to succeed in their careers and in their lives.

Generous support for CSU over the past fiscal year is detailed in this annual report. Thank you! I look forward to working with you for the continued improvement of our University.

Harlan M. Sands, J.D., M.B.A.
President, Cleveland State University
