A Message from the President 

To Our Alumni and Friends:

In May 2015 we launched ENGAGE: The Campaign for Cleveland State University to support student success. Thanks to you and other generous donors who supported CSU in fiscal year 2016, ENGAGE is steadily progressing toward its $100 million goal.

ENGAGE is focused on providing merit and need-based scholarships for students across all fields of study, as well as for student-athletes, and on expanding and strengthening workforce and career preparedness initiatives, such as co-ops and internships. ENGAGE is helping our students stay in school, graduate and use their knowledge and skills to succeed in their careers and in their lives.

Simply put, ENGAGE is providing private dollars to help teach, mentor and impact the lives of students who are the future of Northeast Ohio.

Belief in Cleveland State as the university that educates the leaders and workforce of tomorrow has never been stronger – as evidenced by the generous philanthropy of alumni and friends.  

We couldn’t be more appreciative and we look forward to your continuing support and partnership. 

Ronald M. Berkman

President, Cleveland State University
