Bringing Neighbors Together to Build Community

You might think you know Tumwater, but are you an expert? At Tumwater University, you’ll get the chance to become a certified scholar on all things Tumwater. Learn about our City’s history, how the City functions in day-to-day operations, and plans for the future.

For three evenings, members of local government and elected officials offer informative and interactive classes at Tumwater City Hall. All students receive a course book with resources and information to help choose their courses. At graduation, every student receives a Tumwater University diploma and t-shirt (students must attend all evening sessions to qualify).
