Levin College Selected as Vibrant NEO's 2021 Regional Champion

The Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs has been selected as the 2021 Vibrant NEO Regional Champion and will be recognized at the Fourth Annual Vibrant NEO Award Ceremony on November 18, 2021. The Vibrant NEO Awards celebrate champions who are making Northeast Ohio a more sustainable, vibrant, and resilient region for all residents. The program honors organizations, individuals, communities, and programs that are doing work to help build a stronger, more equitable region that align with the principles of the Vibrant NEO planning framework.

The Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs was selected as the 2021 Regional Champion for playing a leading role in supporting regional collaboration and creating vibrant communities. “The award recognizes all of the work that the College has done to foster regional collaboration,” said Kathryn Hexter, Chair of the Vibrant NEO Regional Champion Program Committee of the Vibrant NEO Board. “The College has been a valued partner of Vibrant NEO since it began with the Northeast Ohio Sustainable Communities Consortium (NEOSCC) grant in 2014, and before NEOSCC, the College played a leadership role addressing the need for regional collaboration and cooperation.”

“This is truly an honor,” said Dr. Roland V. Anglin, Dean and Professor at the Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs. “Promoting regional collaboration has long been a focus of the College, and we are thrilled that our efforts are valued by our partners and our community.” Dean Anglin will serve as the keynote speaker for ceremony this year.
