CSU to establish Center for Transformative Leadership with $1 million gift from KeyBank
A $1 million gift from KeyBank will help Cleveland State University further prepare students to be actively engaged citizens who have a positive, direct impact on their communities. Named for former KeyCorp chairman & CEO, the gift to establish the Beth E. Mooney Center for Transformative Leadership honors Mooney and her unwavering commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
CSU plans for the center to serve as an academic hub for leadership, preparing a new generation of cross-sector leaders with the practical skills to tackle complex global challenges and achieve social impact. The center will also focus on engaged service-learning, integrating community service activities into academic curricula and expanding the learning of students from the classroom to the community.
In addition, the center will help students develop their identities as future professionals, learn presentation and interview skills and form their academic and career plans, emerging as professionals who are truly “practice ready” and “job ready.
