Welcome From the Director
Greetings and welcome to the Central State University-Dayton location. Since 1887, Central State has been committed to providing education that changes lives. As an 1890 Land-Grant Instiution, Central is continuing this legacy of changing lives. Formerly known as CSU West, we are carrying on the legacy of excellence, convenience and care established in the early 1970's.
Through our Dayton location, Central State is working to engage the community in strategic and meaningful partnerships. This past year has seen many changes and accomplishments. Below are just a few:
- Established ABLE\GED Partnership with Miami Valley Career and Technical Center
- Commercial Driver's Liscense partnership created with Butler County Career Technical Center and Montgomery County Workforce Development Department
- Hosted the Project Managment Institute Summit with the local PMI chapter
- Hosted our Community Wellness Day and Hero's 5k Run to support veterans and their families
- Supported the Greater Dayton Union Co-operative Initiative
- Established workforce development courses with BTL Global company
- Offered community access memberships to our Cardio Center and fitness classes
These are just a few of the projects that we have supported over the last year. I am excited about our location being a change agent helping to establish programs and support for the West Side and the Greater Dayton area. I also continue to be optimistic and excited about the opportunity to continue this legacy of service and change.
Please consider us as your choice to begin your educational journey, transfer to complete your degree, or to host your next event or small conference. We are here to serve and support.
# Your Life! #Your Dreams! #Your Future! #Your Partner!
