CSU Honors Longtime Administrator in Building Dedication

On Oct. 2, 2017, CSU renamed the Center for Continuing Education building to the Joseph A. Manjone Center for Continuing Education in tribute to the longtime administrator’s commitment and service to higher education.

Dr. Manjone began his career at CSU in 2000 as the director of education and currently serves as the assistant provost of special programs.

“The decision that dad made, the family made to hire Dr. Manjone was a very critical one. And it set the stage for where we are today,” said CSU President Robert Mayes. “He really does care about the people here and the people he knows. He is friends with almost everyone here. We call him a friend, and not just a coworker.”

During his career, Dr. Manjone has held several leadership positions, including president of Waldorf University, CSU’s sister institution, from 2009 until 2011. Manjone said this was his “most memorable experience.” He has also worked diligently with the CSU Vietnam campus.
“This is an incredible honor. I do want to thank the Mayes family for me being here,” said Manjone during the building dedication ceremony. “I also want to thank the faculty and staff at CSU for all they have done in building CSU and making this possible.”

The Joseph A. Manjone Center for Continuing Education currently features staff offices, meeting rooms and a large training area that can be partitioned off to accommodate various training needs. In addition, the facility serves as the regional training center for the Alabama Fire College and Personnel Standards Commission.
