Brief Bio:
Wendy A. Kellogg is a Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Studies. Dr. Kellogg earned her Ph.D. (City and Regional Planning) at Cornell University in 1993. Her major fields of research interest are local government environmental protection, urban and regional sustainability, neighborhood sustainability, and Great Lakes water quality and land use issues. She has published analyses of Great Lakes water quality planning programs and citizen participation in neighborhood-based environmental planning. Her research projects have included an environmental history and inventory of a neighborhood in central Cleveland, Ohio, the role of local decision makers in coastal and watershed protection, and the role of training programs in shaping local decision maker behavior toward coastal management. She currently is conducting research on collaborative environmental planning processes, including governance systems in the Chagrin River Valley in Northeast Ohio. Dr. Kellogg was a USEPA-funded Fellow at the CSU Program on Risk Analysis in 2000-2001. Dr. Kellogg was a member of the Ohio Lake Erie Commission Blue Ribbon Taskforce on Balanced Growth in the Lake Erie Basin in 2001-2004 and has continued her work with the Balanced Growth program in a research and technical advisory role.  She currently represents Cleveland State on the Cleveland Water Alliance. Dr. Kellogg teaches courses in urban planning, environmental planning, environmental policy, and urban studies.

Creative and Activities:
I currently sit on a steering committee of the Cleveland Water Alliance, which is exploring the economic development and research potential from our location on one of the Great Lakes. I served as chair and organized a conference on Water Resilient Cities and climate change held at the Levin College in April 2016. Results of the conference are available on the Levin College website under "events."
Research Interests:
Most current research interests include collaborative governance and decision making, urban resilience, public planning and management networks, and regional sustainability.  I am currently leading a project to write a book on organizational and social aspects of a broad transition to sustainable development and sustainable cities and regions. My chapter in this book focuses on the collaborative governance network that has emerged in the Chagrin River Valley in NE Ohio.  I also recently participated on a research project for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources focused on water conservation guidelines for the Great Lakes Compact.
