Faculty

Experts Who Know that Context Matters

Faculty come to NYU Wagner and UCL from around the world. In their lectures and research they are adept at unpacking the complicated and often difficult realities of global public service. They are experts in their field with ties to the leading governmental and nongovernmental institutions.

As a student in the program, you'll work with the program directors to create an Individualized Learning Plan, which serves as the foundation and guidepost for your advisement meetings throughout the year. You'll have the opportunity to create strong connections with the program faculty and advisors across both schools.
