Teaching Cleveland Student Challenge


Welcome to the Teaching Cleveland Student Challenge (TCSC)! You will have an opportunity to meet incredible people, think deeply about issues that affect Cleveland, and contribute your ideas and voices to the conversation that will help shape Cleveland in the future.

In 1936 and 1937, at the height of its economic importance to the U.S., Cleveland hosted the Great Lakes Exposition. The Expo served as a celebration of Cleveland’s innovation and civic pride. How had Cleveland grown so quickly? Who were the entrepreneurs who had helped create the economic powerhouse that was Cleveland? And, in the 21st Century, as Cleveland aims to continue its economic and cultural renaissance, who are its movers and shakers? If Cleveland were to host a modern-day Great Lakes Exposition, what and who would it feature?

The TCSC sessions will focus on Cleveland’s history, its recent challenges, its current realities, and its future possibilities. We look forward to hearing your ideas as you connect to Cleveland. Welcome!
