The heart of NYU Wagner's programs is our faculty. An amalgam of full-time, clinical/research/visiting, and adjunct professors, they are outstanding teachers, expert researchers and committed practitioners.
The Academic Research Collaborative (ARC), sponsored by New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, connects university scholarship with federal agency policy and research priorities to expose policymakers to new disciplines and scholars, and ultimately promote more informed and effective policy decisions. The U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Department of Education are the first federal agencies to participate1.
ARC presents an opportunity for scholars to nominate research to senior leaders of key federal agencies. To participate you need simply forward a short description of completed or ongoing research relevant to the agency's stated priorities. A small multi-disciplinary selection committee will review all submissions. If selected, your work will be:
Additionally, you will have the opportunity to participate in a video webinar with senior agency officials and become part of a new network of scholars working directly with the federal government and interested philanthropy on new approaches and pilot projects.
This section presents the research and policy priorities articulated by two federal agencies participating in the Academic Research Collaborative. Please review the priorities and assess whether you have produced or are currently working on research that may assist the agencies in addressing these priorities.
OSHA continuously strives to develop new and innovative approaches and strategies to reducing workplace injury, illness and fatality risk. The agency has identified a set of core questions, the answers to which OSHA believes will aide in determining future priorities, policies and resource needs.
Among the issues the agency is considering:
The Department of Education continually assesses its approach to a range of education areas, and has identified a set of policy questions that could benefit from broader and deeper research to inform its future priorities and policies.
Specifically, the agency is considering the following:

ARC is working with agency officials to identify issues that the Departments feel are both high priority and would benefit from a broad scan of current research.
