John J. Boyle, III, longtime Clevelander, discusses his work at Cleveland State University (CSU). His long career at CSU includes being involved as a student, serving on the board of trustees, and as a vice president under President Michael Schwartz. He talks about parking issues around the campus, and how he has worked at resolving them. He also brings up the antagonism between the city council and CSU, but the university worked hard to correct their image and connect to the community. Boyle emphasized taking CSU out of a "fort-mentality" and making the university become part of Cleveland as opposed to just being in Cleveland.
