Levin College Research Highlights, Fall 2013
Through academics, research, and community involvement, the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University is advancing effective city management and sound urban policy, and changing America’s cities one graduate at a time.
Our graduates work in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors—government, human services, health care, public safety, community development, housing, environmental advocacy—both within our own region and in other parts of the nation.
Our faculty and professional staff are deeply involved in the issues of urban regeneration and are interested in understanding how cities evolved, and are governed, led, and managed. They are actively engaged in applied research and community problem-solving around city management, community development, environmental policy and management, economic development, and more.
Our new Research Highlights report features a mix of work that represents what we do by profiling a few members of the faculty and research staff, and bringing attention to a variety of issues related to city management and urban public policy that may be faced by communities around the state, including:
- Immigration and Metropolitan Economic Development by Sanda Kaufman, Ph.D.
- Causes and Consequences of Racial Profiling by Ronnie Dunn, Ph.D.
- Indicators for Housing Market Analysis by Brian A. Mikelbank, Ph.D.
- Federal vs. State Environmental Funding by Benjamin Y. Clark, Ph.D.
