Citizen University

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.

Citizen University is held over an 11-week period every Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. 

Fall 2024 Session: September 5-November 14

Each session will include an interactive presentation from City staff on various City services and issues, providing an understanding of how citizens play a crucial role in leading League City into the future. The course also includes tours of City facilities. Students are required to complete a minimum of two volunteer hours at a City event or activity.

Participants are expected to attend all classes and are allowed to miss no more than one class. If you anticipate missing more than one class in a session, it is recommended that you choose a different session that will accommodate your schedule. Classes are offered once per year in the fall.

Who Can Participate?

Registration is open on a first-come, first-served basis for any League City residents or business owners who are:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Not currently holding a position as an elected official or running for office during class session

A background check will be required for admission to the program since the course will include a tour of the Public Safety Building. Class size is limited to approximately 20.
