Welcome to the Office of the President

Chicago State University (CSU) is Chicago's oldest, fully accredited public university. It was founded as a teacher-training school over 140 years ago. Today the University is composed of six colleges and one Division, offers thirty-six undergraduate degrees, twenty-two graduate degrees, and two doctoral degrees – the Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership and the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.). CSU also offers an interdisciplinary Honors College for students in all areas of study and has a Division of Continuing Education and Non-Traditional Programs that offer extension courses, distance learning, and not-for-credit programs to the entire Chicago land community.

We invite you to visit our campus and peruse the Web site for more information on our academic programs, University accomplishments, events, and activities for the community. If we can further assist you in any way, please feel free to call our office. Our office staff will be available to speak with you between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are located on the third floor of the Cook Administration Building.
