Urban Preservation

Stephanie Ryberg-Webster

Stephanie Ryberg-Webster is an Associate Professor of Urban Studies in the Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University, where she also directs the Master of Urban Planning and Development program. Her research explores the complex intersections of historic preservation and urban development, including preservation in shrinking/legacy cities, synergies and tensions between preservation and community development, federal and state historic rehabilitation tax credits, and the preservation of Cleveland’s African-American heritage. Dr. Ryberg-Webster’s current work explores the 1970s-era history of historic preservation in Cleveland, as urban disinvestment escalated. Dr. Ryberg-Webster teaches courses in urban planning, historic preservation, urban design, and contemporary urban issues. She earned a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, a Master of Historic Preservation from the University of Maryland, and a Bachelor of Urban Planning from the University of Cincinnati.
