Welcome to the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University.

Thank you for visiting our site. Home to six undergraduate degree programs, five master’s degree programs, an interdisciplinary doctoral program, and three dual degree programs, the Levin College is one of the best institutions to study policy, planning, and public management as these fields are harnessed to improve urban and metropolitan places. We’re ranked #45 (out of 270) for schools of public affairs by U.S. News and World Report, #7 for the specialization in city management and urban policy, and #17 in nonprofit management.

We here at Levin are proud of our prominence in the field, our research, and our long-standing role in developing generations of leaders and managers. Our graduates work in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors within our own region, other parts of the nation, and around the globe. We are also very proud of our active engagement in creating a just and equitable world through our applied research and practice in neighborhood security, preservation, population dynamics, city management, community development, environmental policy, and management and economic development.
