UFV Now Accepting Applications for Winter 2023 Civic Governance and Innovation Certificate Program!

The 6 course Civic Governance and Innovation certificate program is designed for current municipal and regional government employees, and others interested in local governance. This program critically examines the role of local political culture in governance priorities and processes, why some good ideas take root while others do not, and ways that learners build on the best evidence available to effect change. Students collaborate across professional roles in order to identify and mold more resilient and effective organizational practices.
