Cleveland Conversations is being developed through collaboration between the School of Communication (part of the Levin College of Public Affairs and Education at Cleveland State University) and Classic Teleproductions. Cleveland Conversations informs about a wide range of topics of interest to the Greater Cleveland area and beyond. We do this by interviewing content experts from any background using a collaborative frame. Prior topics include the role of colleges and universities in workforce development, the use of technology to prevent and investigate crime, and the impacts of immigration. Our goal is to provide meaningful and interesting information. While we do not seek controversy, we do explore complex and challenging issues.
