League City launched Citizens University in 2015. The mission of the League City Citizens University is to familiarize the residents and business owners of League City with the purpose, process and structure of the city’s government and equip citizens to become active participants in municipal operations.
Citizens University is held over a 10-week period every Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m.
Fall 2022 Session Full: September 8- November 10
Spring 2023 Session: February 23- April 27
Applications open November 1st
Each session will include an interactive presentation from city staff on various city services, issues, and an understanding of how citizens play a crucial role in leading League City into the future. The course may also include tours of City facilities. Participants will also work together on a capstone project to be selected and completed by the class. The project may require some additional work outside of the course.
Participants are expected to attend all classes and are allowed to miss no more than one class. If extreme circumstances exist, classes can be made-up with an individual project assigned by the University Leader.
