Through partnerships with universities and schools across the nation and around the world, RCLA offers students an unparalleled opportunity to witness/experience leadership for the public good in a dynamic, global metropolis.
From the United Nations Headquarters to Ellis Island, historic Harlem to Wall Street, New York City is a world-class laboratory for learning about leadership and public service.
RCLA’s leadership institutes capitalize on our location in the heart of the city by pairing courses on timely leadership topics such as migration management, international development and business ethics, with hands-on, applied learning through site visits.
These in-depth learning experiences draw on the intellectual capital of top-flight faculty from NYU Wagner and the deep expertise of RCLA faculty, staff and senior fellows to offer a wide variety of educational programs for students. The curriculum is tailored to the unique objectives of partner universities' leadership, public affairs, research or management programs.
