 Thanks to all of you who attended the 2016 Neighborhood University program!  We appreciate the time that you took from your busy lives to come out and learn about your local government, as well as your feedback on how we can improve the program. 

We look forward to presenting Neighborhood University again in the Fall of 2017!


Neighborhood University of Greater West Chester is a free program offered by the West Chester Area Council of Governments to educate citizens about local government and increase awareness of available municipal services and resources. Our goal is to help citizens become more effective advocates for their community, which in turn helps local municipalities keep finding ways to improve.

The program is open to any resident or business owner of one of the participating communities who is age 16 or older.  The participating communities are:

  • East Bradford Township
  • East Goshen Township
  • Thornbury Township (Chester County)
  • West Chester Borough
  • West Goshen Township
  • West Whiteland Township
  • Westtown Township
