Galveston University

Welcome to the City's Galveston University. This program is designed to engage citizens and key City staff on a learning process together. As we teach the ins and outs of City government, our hope is to also learn from each of you. A few things:

  • The class will meet each Wednesday evening from 5:30p.m. to 7:30pm in various locations throughout the City.
  • This eight week commitment will require students to come to a minimum of seven classes to be recognized as a graduate. 
  • Each class will cover a variety of departments and information that will help students better understand the role of local government in the community they call home.
  • While residency on the Island is not a requirement, those who do reside in Galveston will be given priority on the limited space in each session. 
  • All participants will be required to pass a criminal background check for the safety of the staff and students.
