Unger Program

The Unger Program at the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs is a program of the Urban Center. Originally founded in 2002 as the Unger International Program for Local Government Leadership, the program’s mission was to catalyze an educational bridge between the Levin College and the University of Rijeka.

In 2010 the College and the Unger Family Foundation began to reenvision a new direction for the program while still remaining true to the long standing work and history of the Ungers in both Cleveland and Croatia.

Today, the program serves to support and foster economic and community development  through independent research and civic education and engagement.
