The heart of NYU Wagner's programs is our faculty. An amalgam of full-time, clinical/research/visiting, and adjunct professors, they are outstanding teachers, expert researchers and committed practitioners.
NYU Wagner alumnus David Smith (MPA, '76) has won a prestigious 2008 National Public Service Award from the American Society of Public Administration (ASPA) and the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) for excellence in public service at all levels of government. Smith is the County Administrator, Maricopa County, Arizona.
ASPA and NAPA established the National Public Service Awards in 1983 to honor individuals whose accomplishments are models of sustained public service within and outside the work environment.
