2015 Citizens' Academy Class

To encourage more civic involvement through a basic understanding of City services, the HAND Department developed the Citizens' Academy.

The Academy is a nine-week program that provides thirty participants with an interactive learning experience about City services, programs and responsibilities.

Through the sessions with various City Departments, the participants learn about the challenges to city government, budget limitations, day-to-day operations and mandates.

Please feel free to submit an Online Application. The application will put you on the 2015 Citizens' Academy waiting list and you will be contacted in the spring of 2015. In the meantime, you may contact Vickie Provine via phone (349.3505) or email (provinev@bloomington.in.gov) should you have further questions.

2015 Classes will be held every Thursday, September 3 through October 29 - 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Registration deadline - Monday, July 13, 2015.
