CSU Launches New "Levin Serves" Series

Cleveland State University's Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs' Office of Civic Engagement and the Center for Public & Nonprofit Management (CPNM) are proud to launch the "Levin Serves” series. This new quarterly outreach activity will unite Levin College students, faculty, staff and alumni for an afternoon of community service.

“Through these service days, we hope to contribute to a sense of lifelong learning and service among our colleagues and students, while engaging the communities that surround CSU,” says Anita Ruf-Young, who is coordinating the series for the Office of Civic Engagement with Rob Ziol and Alexandra Higl from CPNM. “The Levin College is known for its collaboration with nonprofit agencies focusing on serving Cleveland and Northeast Ohio,” say Ziol. 

Kicking off the first “Levin Serves” series is an afternoon of community service at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank on Friday, Feb. 22. Participants will donate their time from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. to help package and sort perishable and nonperishable food. All Cleveland State University faculty, staff, students, and alumni are welcome to join the series. Registration is required. To register for the first “Levin Serves” series, visit

The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in Northeast Ohio. In 2018, the organization provided 57 million meals to residents in Cuyahoga, Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Ashland and Richland counties.
