Missouri City Citizens University (MCCU)

Think you know all there is to know about Missouri City? Well, think again! 

Sign up for Citizens University to go behind the scenes and learn the inner workings of municipal government. To facilitate community outreach and engagement initiatives, Missouri City invites residents to participate in Citizens University. This 10-session program allows participants to meet with City staff members, go on field trips, take tours and view City projects in process.

The program provides an opportunity for residents to share their input and feedback with City officials, as well as with the staff members who build budgets, construct capital projects, plan for growth, help our City remain green, lead recreation activities and keep neighborhoods safe. It also allows those community members who are leaders in their neighborhoods to branch out and become more involved with citywide services and programs.

Upcoming Session

  • Applications closed August 3, 2023. 

The first session of Citizens University is August 17, 2023. MCCU is a free, 10-session operational program facilitated by staff once a month to give residents an inside look at how local government works. Participants will be able to speak first hand with public servants who build budgets, manage capital improvement projects, plan for economic development and growth, help our City remain clean and green, lead recreation activities, and keep neighborhoods safe. As part of the process, residents will also be able to provide input and feedback on strategic initiatives.
