Central State University-Dayton

Greetings and welcome to the Central State University-Dayton. Since 1887, Central State has been committed to providing education that changes lives. CSU-Dayton, formerly known as CSU West, is carrying on the legacy of excellence, convenience, and care established in the early 1970s. CSU-Dayton is engaging the community in strategic and meaningful partnerships. This past year has seen many changes and accomplishments, including the following: 

  • Opened the Workforce Training and Business Development Center at 840 Germantown St., Dayton, a hub to serve underserved communities in Clark, Greene, and Montgomery counties
  • Established the ABLE\GED partnership with Miami Valley Career and Technical Center
  • Created a commercial driver's license partnership with Butler County Career Technical Center and Montgomery County Workforce Development Services 
  • Hosted the Project Management Institute Summit with the local PMI chapter
  • Hosted 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
  • Offered community access memberships to our Cardio Center and fitness classes

These are just a few of the projects that we have supported in past years. We are excited about our location being a change agent in helping to establish programs and support for the West side and the Greater Dayton area. Our faculty and staff are optimistic and inspired by the opportunity to continue a legacy of service and change.

Please consider us as your choice to begin your educational journey, transfer to complete your degree, or host your next event or small conference. We are here to serve and support.
