For 20 years, the Master of Urban Planning, Design and Development (MUPDD) program of the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs, Cleveland State University, has educated hundreds of planners and challenged them to think critically about their role as professionals helping to shape the quality of city life. Join us to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the MUPDD program with some of the most respected and progressive thinkers in the planning field.
Keynote speaker, Susan Fainstein, will discuss her new book “The Just City” which encourages planners and policymakers to develop programs that assure greater justice in both the process of their formulation and their effects. Norm Krumholz, the pioneer of “Equity Planning”, will reflect on ways that cities can provide more choices to those who have few, if any. Pierre Clavel and Ken Reardon, colleagues of Norm’s over many years will reflect on progressive planning and planners. Clavel is the leading scholar on progressive cities; his most recent book is Activists in City Hall and in-depth study of progressive administrations in Boston and Chicago during the 1980s. Reardon organized the East St. Louis Action Research Project and later, the People’s Plan for the Lower Ninth Ward in post-Katrina New Orleans to assist neighborhood people to plan the rebuilding of their neighborhoods.
They will be joined by Rev. Tracey Lind, Dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, a leading voice for social justice in Cleveland.
