A Message From The Division of Institutional Advancement

Central State University is embarking on a new era in the Division of Institutional Advancement (IA). My staff and I are looking forward to collaborating with all of our great alumni chapters, corporate partners, and supporters across the nation and internationally to ensure that the goals of Central State University (CSU) are achieved and sustained for future generations.

Based on a long-standing tradition, CSU alumni and supporters all share a common bond: PRIDE!  Our pride grows with each student who attends and graduates from this great institution. Through our combined efforts, CSU will continue to enhance quality academic experiences for our students; provide increased funding for improved facilities; offer scholarships for deserving students; and deliver support for enhanced academic programs.

Under the leadership of President Jack Thomas, the Division of Institutional Advancement will continue to share information and facilitate discussions regarding the University's new land grant mission and strategic long-range goals.  Emphasis is placed on engaging our communities, students, alumni, and friends at an unprecedented level.  Implementation of the vision requires your active involvement.  We need you to be a part of the University's plans for sustainability!

As we plan, Institutional Advancement will be at the forefront garnering the necessary monetary resources to ensure the long-term success of Central State University. Together, we will ensure that our alma mater thrives for years to come.
