Apply for Loveland U

Loveland U 2021 Class Participants

Loveland U is back! The City of Loveland is accepting applications for the 2021 program, which offers a “behind the scenes” look at the community.

Loveland U consists of 10 “class” sessions on designated topics held weekly Sept. 15 – Nov. 17. These sessions are designed for adults and are interactive with minimal lecture time. Participants will obtain knowledge and provide valuable feedback about issues, plans and activities of the Loveland community. 

“City Council is committed to finding ways to help our residents understand the decisions we make, become more involved, and connect with the community. This program accomplishes all these goals and more,” said Mayor Kathy Bailey.

Sessions will include practical exercises that help relate a topic to real world experiences by identifying an issue, educating on how one might address it, and then allowing participants to apply their knowledge. For instance, one session covers property rights versus community good, and participants are challenged to review a case study. 

The program is designed for adults. You must live or work in the City of Loveland or be a member of a civic organization based in Loveland. Enrollment will be capped at 25 participants. Enrollment applications can be downloaded online and are due by June 30. 

Whether you are a newcomer or have lived here many years, Loveland U offers a perspective on the city’s structure, as well as local organizations. The city partners with Little Miami Conservancy, Loveland City Schools, Loveland Stage Company, and Loveland Museum Center to host the program.

“Loveland U was great for me because I got to see how many people were doing thoughtful, next-level work for our awesome city. What was even better is that it inspired camaraderie within our class to get involved. Loveland U has led to me knowing more familiar faces and wonderful new experiences within Loveland,” said Jon Espy, a Loveland resident and 2019 program graduate.

Loveland U launched in 2019. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 program was not held. For more information, please contact Loveland U Director Ray Kingsbury at rkingsbury@lovelandoh.gov.
