Teaching Professor Barbara Levin

​Barbara Levin joined the Brown School in 2002 as the inaugural coordinator for the Alliance for Building Capacity (ABC), providing capacity building services to nonprofit social service agencies. The program became the structure for the Brown School’s placed-based initiatives. Through ABC, she implemented and managed community initiatives and coordinated the work of graduate students with partner institutions and organizations particularly in under-resourced communities. 

In 2017, Levin joined the Office of Field Education as a program manager of community capacity building. Levin teaches a range of classes: Community Development Practice, Effective Meeting Management and Facilitation, and the Field Education Practicum Seminar. She also co-teaches the transdisciplinary Urban Development Symposium with faculty from St. Louis University and the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts, and oversees the joint degree program with the Sam Fox School. In 2004, she launched the MSW Social Entrepreneurship Specialization teaching the Introduction to Social Entrepreneurship course. She has been recognized twice as MSW Advisor of the Year.

Prior to joining the Brown School, Levin held nonprofit leadership roles at Focus St. Louis, the JCC of Bergen County, and the B’nai B’rith Youth Organization. She is the former chair of Nonprofit Missouri, where she served on the founding board. Levin provides counsel to numerous local civic and neighborhood organizations.
