Capstone Event Exhibits Findings of More than 80 Student Teams

New messaging for the New York City Fire Department aimed at attracting minorities. A study of food supply chain vulnerabilities for the Myanmar Association for Public Policy. Research on whether a statistically significant relationship exists between political representation (Democratic or Republican) and infant mortality rates across the United States.

The much-anticipated exhibition of NYU Wagner's Capstone Program, held May 13, included 82 student teams – with 365 students in all. The teams crisply presented the summaries of their consulting work for 70 different organizations in 2013-14.  Four applied research projects were also presented. Those projects described above were just three examples of the Capstone Program's latest output.

Some 400 guests, including students, faculty, alumni, and organizational clients, attended the upbeat, findings-filled evening event at the Kimmel Center for University Life.

This year as in past years, NYU Wagner's Capstone program has provided students with a centerpiece of their graduate school education whereby they are able to experience first-hand turning the theory of their studies into practice in the field. Since 1995, more than 4,800 students have participated in nearly 1,110 projects for more than 750 organizations in the nonprofit, public, and private sectors, and in the city, region, and world.
