President's Message

At Chicago State, we are intentional about designing educational experiences and cultivating partnerships that equip our students with the skills needed to be successful in an ever-transforming job landscape. Through our seventy undergraduate and graduate degree-granting and non-degree programs, and the University’s five colleges - Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Health Sciences, and Pharmacy, our students continue to demonstrate the transformative power of education through your resilience, dedication to academic excellence, and strong demonstration of integrity.

Chicago State University remains committed to fostering a world-class, higher education learning community that centers our students and stimulates your academic and personal development. Your success is our top priority. 

Even in the midst of this new public health landscape, our institution proudly pushes forward as an engine for equitable transformation. The role of Chicago State University could not be more important to Illinois and to Chicago.

We remain steadfast in our commitment to provide student-centered, equitable experiences for every student who calls Chicago State University home. It is my honor to continue working to build on CSU’s distinguished legacy.
