Norman Krumholz Tribute Save the DatePlease join us on February 29 for a celebration of the life and legacy of Norman Krumholz, Emeritus Professor of Urban Planning at the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University, and a widely-respected urban planner and community development leader. Professor Krumholz left an indelible mark on our city and campus, and his contributions to how we learn and teach neighborhood-building, community development, and city revitalization will impact us and future generations for many years to come.

Professor Krumholz joined CSU in 1979 as founding Director of the Center for Neighborhood Development (CND) and spent the next 40 years educating multiple generations of urban planners. He and his staff were instrumental in supporting and expanding the network of community development corporations dedicated to neighborhood revitalization. This led to the formation in 1981 of the Cleveland Housing Network, which became a national model for the rehabilitation of housing for low-income tenants and for helping many of them become homeowners.

Prior to joining the Levin College, Professor Krumholz worked as an urban planning practitioner in Ithaca, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland, where he served in the mayoral administrations of Ralph J. Perk, Dennis Kucinich, and Carl Stokes.
