Columbus State University


The history of Columbus State University is closely intertwined with that of Columbus. The idea for a junior college was first proposed by the Columbus Chamber of Commerce in 1949. Efforts by local citizens kept the idea alive by raising money to purchase the college's current site and developing plans for its administration.


As the only four-year institution in the governor's 17-county Economic Region 5, the university provides cultural enrichment, educational opportunities, and economic development assistance to the citizens, businesses, and industries located in the region. This regional perspective offers numerous opportunities for all students to become involved in research and community projects. It also has resulted in several off-campus sites being established to better serve the students.


The mission of the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness (OIRE) at Columbus State University is to conduct research and analysis about the university's students, faculty, staff, and programs to provide information in support of institutional planning, assessment, policy analysis, and decision making. OIRE will also facilitate institutional effectiveness to advance the mission of the University.
