The Heart of NYU Wagner

The heart of NYU Wagner's programs is our faculty. Premier scholars in a variety of disciplines and fields--economics, finance, sociology, political science, law, planning, health care, and more--our faculty members conceive new answers to ambitious social questions.

Faculty members come to NYU Wagner from around the country and around the world. With extensive ties to leading health, nonprofit and government institutions, our faculty members bring the complicated and often difficult realities of public service today to Wagner's classrooms. They have chosen NYU Wagner as their home because they understand that today's public service issues require interdisciplinary approaches and creative solutions.
