Cleveland State University Foundation A FOUNDATION FOR ENGAGED LEARNING

Annual Report 2010–2011

CSU FOUNDATION | Annual Report 2010–2011 |


LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT OF CLEVELAND STATE UNIVERSITY

To our Alumni and Friends, I am pleased to share with you the Cleveland State University Foundation Annual Report. This past fiscal year we received the largest gift in CSU’s history when alumnus and prominent businessman Monte Ahuja and his wife, Usha, donated $10 million to fund scholarships and an endowed professorship in global business. Mr. Ahuja, MBA ’75, attributes his success in business and in life to his CSU education. He and his wife say they are privileged to give back. They lead by example, encouraging others to take advantage of all that CSU offers and to support the University. The Cleveland Foundation awarded a grant of $1.5 million jointly to Cleveland State and to the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) to support our collaborative effort to recruit, educate and train primary care physicians to serve urban communities. This grant will help support a University pipeline to high school juniors and seniors interested in studying medicine, clinical spaces in neighborhoods, and mentoring opportunities. We also inaugurated a new annual tradition – Radiance, CSU Realizing the Promise – to increase private support for scholarships. Radiance more than lived up to its name, raising approximately $377,000 which enabled us to award scholarships to more than 100 students, keeping them in school and on track toward graduation. Words cannot express our gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Ahuja for their unparalleled generosity, to the Cleveland Foundation for advancing an academic initiative that will impact the future of Northeast Ohio, and to all those who supported Radiance. Yet despite such successes, our need is still great. A long recession and anemic recovery are making the dream of college more challenging for many middle-class families. Significant cuts to student aid programs add even more urgency to our top fundraising goal of additional student scholarships. To this end, we have hired Berinthia R. LeVine as vice president for advancement and executive director of the CSU Foundation. With her strong background and outstanding success as a fundraiser in Greater Cleveland, she will bolster our advancement efforts and bring a new level of philanthropic support to Cleveland State. To all our alumni and friends, thank you for your support. Whether you are making a financial contribution, volunteering your time, or providing internships and cooperative education experiences for our students, you are helping make a great University even better.

Ronald M. Berkman President, Cleveland State University

LETTER FROM THE CHAIR AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE CSU FOUNDATION

To our Alumni and Friends, An investment in Cleveland State University is an investment that pays dividends. When students graduate, remain in Northeast Ohio and find employment that allows them to use their knowledge and skills, that’s a dividend. When faculty research helps cure disease or reduce energy consumption, that’s a dividend. And when a campus evolves into a thriving downtown neighborhood that brings residents and visitors back to the city, that’s a dividend, too. Despite the harsh economy, we’re proud to say that donors are still investing in Cleveland State University. In fact, our Foundation assets have grown to $53.9 million — the highest total ever, thanks to new gifts and effective management. While this is great news, our endowment must continue to grow to match CSU’s quality and importance to the community. It is imperative that CSU, like all state universities, increase its support from the private sector. Businesses, foundations, alumni and friends must be the source of the annual, capital, special project, scholarship, fellowship and endowment gifts that will keep the University strong and growing. Cleveland State is an invaluable community resource — providing students of all ages with the education they need to succeed; helping business, scientific, government and civic partners identify and resolve challenges; and boosting the economy and city life. Our alumni, donors and friends have helped make Cleveland State University what it is today. For that, we thank you. We look forward to your continued support to help CIeveland State and its students become even better in the future.

Philanthropic Highlights 2010-2011 Cleveland State University Foundation assets reached an all-time high — ­ $53.9 million, thanks to generous gifts and prudent financial counsel.

Radiance, CSU Realizing the Promise raised approximately $377,000 in support of student scholarships in its first year. Radiance scholarships were awarded to more than 100 undergraduate students in good academic standing who were at risk for dropping out of school because of finances. Next year’s Radiance, CSU Realizing the Promise will be Friday, May 11, 2012. Radiance not only is CSU’s signature fundraising event, it is key to the University’s student retention efforts.

Alumnus Monte Ahuja, MBA ’75, and his wife, Usha, made the largest gift in the University’s 47-year history — a $10 million commitment to fund scholarships in business and engineering, as well as an endowed professorship, the Monte Ahuja Endowed Chair in Global Business. Mr. Ahuja used a business plan he developed as a CSU class project to found Transtar Industries, Inc., which launched his successful career. The Monte Ahuja College of Business was named in his honor. Mr. Ahuja served as a member of the CSU Board of Trustees from 1991-2000, including six years as chairman, and was the first alumnus to do so. He also served as a director of the CSU Foundation. In 1990, he was named one of Cleveland State’s Top 25 Distinguished Alumni. This generous gift by Mr. and Mrs. Ahuja recognizes CSU’s top fundraising goal – increasing scholarship support for students.

The Power of Three partnership between Cleveland State University, the Cleveland Play House and PlayhouseSquare raised $XX million for the conversion of the historic Allen Theatre into a new performance home for both the Play House and CSU’s Department of Theatre and Dance. This arts education collaborative, unlike any other in the nation, will provide stateof-the-art facilities for our students while enabling them to hone their skills alongside working professionals. In addition to the Allen Theatre, CSU’s new arts campus includes the renovated Middough Building as home to the theatre, dance and art programs. And CSU’s art gallery will relocate to a highly visible location in the former Cowell and Hubbard Building. The Power of Three partnership/arts campus is a key component in CSU’s ongoing commitment to building a downtown neighborhood while also enhancing the educational experience.

U.S. News and World Report ranked Cleveland State University within the top 10 percent of more than 3,000 universities in its “National University” category.

Campus Village, the single largest residential development in Cleveland in more than three decades, is underway along Chester Avenue between East 21st and East 24th streets. A modern lifestyle development of nine buildings, restaurants, shops, green spaces and more, Campus Village will offer more than 300 marketrate apartments and help create a thriving University neighborhood in the heart of downtown Cleveland.

The University entered into a partnership with the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) aimed at training urban primary care physicians. The initiative will train doctors through two unique programs – one targeting individuals who already have bachelor’s degrees and one targeting freshmen from minority and disadvantaged backgrounds. The state of Ohio included funds for CSU/NEOMED in its annual budget – recognition of the program’s significance and potential for addressing the serious national issue of urban health care.

Radiance, CSU Realizing the Promise

The success of Radiance was made possible by support from the corporate community and private donors. More than 400 guests attended the reception and brief program.

Radiance scholars Wanfang Chen’s family came to Cleveland from China nearly four years ago for the educational opportunities available here. The only person in her family to speak English, the CSU sophomore says language is her biggest challenge in the classroom and in studying. The Cleveland resident hopes to graduate in 2015 and pursue a career as a pediatric nurse.

George Thomas became interested in electrical engineering while working on a high school science fair project. Enrolled in an accelerated 4+1 program in the Fenn College of Engineering, he will graduate in 2012 with his bachelor’s degree and in 2013 with his master’s degree. The Cleveland resident works in the College’s embedded control systems research lab and has co-authored a conference paper and technical book chapter.

Following in the footsteps of her grandfather and mother, Rachel Winegar is a thirdgeneration CSU student. The Mentor resident, who plans to become a doctor, is majoring in biology/ pre-medicine and also conducts independent research projects. Rachel says her Radiance scholarship allows her to concentrate on her studies and activities such as competitive horseback riding and volunteering with a hospice organization.

The first in his family to attend college, Feras Hamdan will graduate in 2012 with a degree in biology. A member of the American Medical Student Association, he plans to attend medical school and specialize in orthopedics or podiatry. The Westlake resident volunteers at the Cleveland Clinic as a researcher and calls himself a proud Viking.
