9th Annual Tumwater University Program

March 23 & 30, 2020

6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at City Hall


Tumwater University is about bringing neighbors together to build vibrant communities

At Tumwater University, you’ll get the chance to become a scholar on all of the important things that make Tumwater a special place to live. Learn about our City’s history, how the City functions in day-to-day operations, and our plans for future growth.

For two engaging evenings, we invite members of local government, elected officials, and professionals who offer informative and interactive classes at Tumwater City Hall.  Students receive a course book with resources and information to help choose their courses. The program culminates with the opportunity for students to help guide City priorities in the coming year through an interactive group session with City leaders.
