DEPARTMENT OF URBAN STUDIES

Levin College Faculty

The Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs teaches men and women how to work effectively for positive change in the communities of Northeast Ohio. By blending a broad understanding of the urban environment with advanced problem-solving skills, urban affairs graduates qualify for a variety of positions in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Research undertaken through the college directly links the university with the concerns of the Cleveland metropolitan area.

Both the instructional and research programs of the college are interdisciplinary in character, drawing on resources and specialized skills throughout the university. Adjunct faculty from community agencies and government supplements the full-time faculty and staff of the college.

Levin College graduates are engaged in city planning, program development, community organizing, public safety and homeland security, nonprofit administration, environmental and sustainability policy development and analysis, public finance and economic development. Many graduates have found the urban affairs majors to be a strong foundation for advanced study in law, urban planning, public administration, or environmental policy and management.
