Fenn College Seal
Fenn College Seal

Cleveland State traces its historical roots to 1870, when the Cleveland YMCA began to offer free classes. The YMCA program was formalized in 1881, reorganized in 1906 as the Association Institute, and became the Cleveland School of Technology, later renamed Fenn College. Fenn College expanded, taking over several buildings in the area. In 1964 Cleveland State appropriated the buildings, faculty, staff, and programs of Fenn College, a private institution of 2,500 students, and became a public university. Industrialist James J. Nance served as the first Board of Trustees Chairperson. Image File history File links FennSeal. ...

Since the appointment of Dr. Michael Schwartz as University President, Cleveland State has transformed its role in the community and the region, in particular as an economic development engine. Schwartz and the Provost have begun implementing their vision for the school to move it from an overall fourth tier university in the US News and World Report rankings, to that of a second tier university with world class research programs. As part of this change, CSU has ended its policy of open admissions, instituted an honors program, begun the process of seeking funding to boost its faculty size and prestige, and created a master plan for the campus, rebuilding the university as a residential metropolitan campus in the heart of downtown Cleveland.
