What is the Reno Citizens Institute?

The 2017 Reno Citizens Institute session runs from August 10 through October 12. The registration deadline is July 28, 2017 or until capacity is reached. Space is limited to the first 40 participants.

The Reno Citizens Institute (RCI) answers many of the questions you may have about how government works in the City of Reno, Nevada. RCI is a nine week course (plus the graduation ceremony on October 12) covering a variety of Reno city government functions. The program is offered free to Reno citizens.

RCI participants meet with elected officials and City of Reno staff to gain an understanding of Reno's structure, processes, and services through hands-on exercises and presentations.

RCI gives participants valuable insight into City operations so they can become ambassadors for positive change in their neighborhood and the community. It also offers a learning opportunity for those who want to serve on one of Reno's advisory boards or are interested in running for office.

Pre-registration is required for RCI attendees. The deadline is July 28, 2017. For additional information, visit the website, call (775) 334-3112 or email rci@reno.gov. Online registration is available.
