Behind-the-Scenes Peek at City Government Offered in Glendale University Classes

Classes begin Wednesday, Feb. 7

Sponsored by Arizona State University

Glendale University 101 is an 11-session program sponsored by Arizona State University that offers a behind-the-scenes look at how city government works. This is the 21st edition of Glendale University!

Glendale residents and those who own businesses in the city can sign up for Glendale University (GU) to learn more about city government directly from the Mayor, Councilmembers, City Manager, and top city staff. In the 21 years since the program was started, almost 1000 people have attended.

The program’s continued popularity is credited to the one-on-one interactions among attendees and the core curriculum that focuses on everything from the city courts to utilities.

Sessions cover the inner workings of a variety of city services, including public safety, city court, libraries, public works, finance and budget, parks and recreation, public affairs, neighborhoods, water services, boards and commissions, and much more. Schedule will be posted soon to view the spring 2018 list of courses.

The classes, which are free, are limited in size to encourage interaction between attendees and the elected officials and city staff who teach each unit.

To participate in GU 101, you must be 16 years or older, a resident of Glendale, or own a business in Glendale. Attendees who complete nine of the eleven GU 101 classes will be honored at the graduation ceremony on the final night.

Registration is now closed.
