Levin is ranked 3rd in the US in the specialty of Urban Planning and Policy, and ranked 13th and 20th in the specialties of Local Government Management and Nonprofit Management, respectively.

Since its establishment in 1977, Levin has gained a reputation for:

  • Training present and future generations of urban planners, nonprofit and for-profit leaders, public administrators and scholars;
