Central State University, located in Wilberforce, Ohio is one of the nation’s oldest historically black universities, with a 120-year legacy of academic and athletic achievements. The College of Education, the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Business and Industry, which includes the Departments of Manufacturing Engineering and Water Resources Management, form the core of the university’s varied academic offerings.

A centrally located branch campus in Dayton, CSU-Dayton offers a range of courses and class schedules that serve the needs of non-traditional learners wishing to complete their undergraduate degrees, pursue master’s degrees in education, or take advantage of professional development opportunities.

CSU is Ohio’s only predominantly African-American public institution of higher education, but it is, and has always been “open to all persons of good moral character”, as ordained by the 1887 legislation that create Central State’s predecessor. The University actively promotes diversity in its student body, faculty and staff, even as the institution adheres to its core historical responsibility to educate young African-American men and women.
