The Levin College of Public Affairs and Education at Cleveland State University has again been highly ranked by U.S. News & World Report as part of their 2024 Best Graduate School rankings. 

For the fourth consecutive year, the College’s Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs was ranked among the top three schools nationally in the specialty of Urban Planning and Policy. Overall, the School was ranked 57th in Public Affairs, and continues to remain highly ranked as 12th in the specialty of Local Government Management. The College also received recognition by US News and World Report as a 2024 Best Education School. 

“We are honored to continue our legacy of being ranked as one of the best public affairs and education schools in the nation,” said Dr. Roland V. Anglin, Dean and Professor at Levin. “We are particularly proud to maintain our position of being ranked 3rd in Urban Planning and Policy.”  

The Levin College has been recognized for its specialization in areas of city management and urban policy by U.S. News & World Report since 1998. 

“Folding the expertise of our public affairs, education, and human services faculty and staff into the new Levin College of Public Affairs and Education has provided valuable capacity as we advance our work in economic and community development, city planning, public safety, health, education, and new media,” Dean Anglin shared. 

“The Levin College’s consistently high rankings reflect our strong commitment toward improving public policies and expanding opportunities for underserved people and communities, while creating pipelines through which traditionally underrepresented groups can thrive.”
