At Gainesville 101: The 2017 Citizens' Academy, attendees will learn more about our community and the issues that could affect them. This site contains an overview of the handouts and topics that will be discussed each week. To receive the most from Gainesville 101, students should attend each session as the Citizens' Academy online version is not intended to be a substitute for the weekly classes. Instead, this site is intended to be a complementary component to the weekly sessions.
