What is a “muniversity”?

A recent blog from former Deputy Mayor of Bloomington, IN, Maria Katrien Heslin, produced some interesting terminology that I hadn’t quite heard before.

“Muniversity” –  This is a “place” municipal employees can go to learn more about the city they work for.

“Communicity” – An online community for municipal employees to learn more about city projects, etc…

Regardless of new or old terminology, the theme she encourages other municipalities to embrace is more communication and sharing with public employees so they are empowered to serve the community better.  Read the full blog at Governing.com.
