NLC University is a collaborative education and professional development initiative developed by the National League of Cities that helps municipal leaders—both elected and appointed—build the skills they need to better govern, serve, and advocate for their communities.
Created by city officials for city officials, NLC University is a unique, multi-dimensional learning experience, offering participants the ability to explore, challenge, and learn—when, where, and how they want.
With unprecedented strategic partnerships, access to national experts, and high quality peer-to-peer exchange, NLC University offerings deliver real-world solutions – and innovative new approaches -- to the challenges that city leaders face.
"City leaders across the country will be able to leverage partnerships with experts from the public, non-profit, academic and corporate sectors to bring the best ideas and learning opportunities to their cities."
