What is the Reno Citizens Institute?

The 2016 Reno Citizens Institute fall session runs from August 30 through November 1. The registration deadline is August 16, 2016 and space is limited to 70 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 an eight week course covering a variety of Reno city government functions. The program is offered free to Reno citizens twice a year, in spring and fall.

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 fall deadline is August 16, 2016. For additional information, visit the website or call (775) 334-3112. Online registration is available.
