Since its inception in 2000, the Levin College Forum has encouraged the type of broad based community dialogue that leads to serious public and private actions to tackle difficult issues that cut across the governmental, business and civic sectors of our region. The Forum is the place where people come together to learn, connect and envision a better future for themselves and for Northeast Ohio. In March 2007, the Levin College kicked-off Our Place in the Urban Age, a year-long series of ten forums and one photography exhibit celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs. Our Place explored the dynamic role of cities in a world transformed by technology, climate change, modern lifestyles and a global economy.
