Experts Who Know that Context Matters

Faculty come to NYU Wagner and UCL from around the world. In their lectures 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.

Students entering the program work with the program directors to create an Individualized Learning Plan, which serves as the foundation and guidepost for advisement meetings throughout the year. Students are able to create strong connections with the program faculty and advisors across both schools.
