Local Government Excursions

Richmond is a vibrant center for city and state government and public policy. UR Downtown is located just a few blocks from the Virginia State Capitol and Richmond’s City Hall. The Richmond City Council and Richmond School Board meet regularly in City Hall at 301 North Ninth Street. The Virginia General Assembly convenes session every winter, beginning in January, in the Virginia State Capitol at 1000 Bank Street.

Each semester, UR Downtown and RVAGOV sponsor excursions to local government meetings. This fall we will be able to join the live stream of the meetings virtually. Ahead of the meeting a guest speaker will provide educational context and discussion about the meeting.
