City University

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City University application process is currently paused. Rather than following the traditional course timeline of January-June, City University 2021 will likely begin accepting applications in the Spring. This page will be updated to reflect the new application dates and course timeline in the coming months.

What is City University? 

The goal of offering New Braunfels City University is to provide citizens the opportunity to learn about the City’s services and operations. The objectives of the program are that participants will: 

◦Learn about the relationship between the citizens, the City Council, its boards and commissions, and City administration 

◦ Learn how and why projects are undertaken and the manner in which services are provided 

◦ Receive an overview of the budget planning process, the development review process, and many other responsibilities and functions of city government 

◦ Receive an interactive learning experience through case studies, site tours, group discussion, and hands-on experience 

◦ Graduate with a greater understanding of municipal operations 

◦ Annual sessions are held in the Spring from January-June. Classes meet every other Thursday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for eleven scheduled sessions
