As an MUPDD alum, you are invited to this 25th anniversary celebration of the Master of Urban Planning, Design and Development (MUPDD) Program. The MUPDD Program was launched in Fall, 1990 and the first class of six graduated in May, 1992. Well over 300 have since graduated from the program. Currently, there are 40 students enrolled in the MUPDD Program. Last year it was re-accredited through 2019. You can check on the status of the program on its website: http://urban.csuohio.edu/academics/graduate/mupdd/
There are links to Alums and a News section. Professor Dennis Keating, its founding director and its director since 2007, will retire in June, 2015. His successor will be Professor Stephanie Ryberg-Webster, who coordinates the Historic Preservation specialization.
The March 26 program will highlight the contributions of the faculty, students and alums to the field of Neighborhood Development. About 40 alums have been identified as currently working or in the past have worked in Neighborhood Development. If this applies to you, you are asked to send your resume and a photo to Dr. Keating: firstname.lastname@example.org These alums will be recognized at the Levin College Forum celebration. A panel of Cleveland community leaders in neighborhood development will discuss what has occurred over the past quarter-century. Emeritus Professor Norm Krumholz and Phil Star, past directors of the Levin College Center for Neighborhood Development, will be recognized. The keynote speaker will be Alan Mallach of The Brookings Institution, the Center for Community Progress, and the National Housing Institute, nationally recognized for his work on neighborhood development.
