Marketing & Communications - October 2, 2017
The city is accepting applications for the next class of "City of Winston-Salem University," to be held for 12 weeks starting Feb. 1, 2018. City of Winston-Salem University gives citizens a better understanding of city government, including the responsibilities of various city departments and the city’s role in the community.
Classes meet Thursday evenings for three hours. Topics will include city governance and finance, sanitation, utilities operations, transportation, public safety, planning and economic development, housing and recreation.
Class size is limited to 20 participants who will be selected through an application process. Applications will be evaluated based on the reason for participating, leadership potential, diversity and residency (city residents receive first priority, then Forsyth County residents).
City of Winston-Salem University is free, however, participants have the option of earning continuing education credit through Winston-Salem State University for a nominal fee of $25.
