Diversity and Inclusion in Public Service Reception

Sunday, April 2, 4:00 - 6:00pm

NYU Wagner
295 Lafayette St., 2nd Floor

As an institution and in our work, we grapple with stubborn and compounding issues of discrimination, disparity, and access to prepare our students to develop better solutions to our toughest social challenges. 

This reception is a way for all admitted students to learn about NYU Wagner’s values and why we believe this commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion plays a vital role in public service education. You will have the opportunity to meet your peers and our community in a relaxed and welcoming setting.
