2011 'State of the Borough' Address Spotlights Capstone Program

2011 'State of the Borough' Address Spotlights Capstone Program

The Capstone Program at NYU Wagner came in for high praise in the State of the Borough address delivered February 24, 2011, by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr.

"In October," he stated, "New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service chose the Kingsbridge Armory for a study through its highly competitive Capstone Program. The Capstone Program is very well-respected, so much so that multiple city agencies have used its services to design and plan major projects. For several months, Capstone has been providing our task force with valuable support as we move forward on developing a new plan for the Armory.

"The report of this task force must be the cornerstone of a new RFP, and I invite the Mayor to join with me to responsibly develop the K ingsbridge Armory. Responsible development means that whatever plan we choose has a direct positive impact on all citizens...." said Diaz.

The Capstone Program is learning in action. Part of the core curriculum of the MPA and MUP programs at Wagner, it provides students with both a critical learning experience and an opportunity to perform a public service. Over the course of an academic year, students work in teams, either to address challenges and identify opportunities for a client organization or to conduct research on a pressing social question. Ultimately, Capstone contributes not only to the students' education, but also to the public good.
