2012 Idealist Panel and Grad Fair

Connection. Collaboration. Commitment. Career: Your Future in Public Service


On Thursday, September 13, 2012, NYU Wagner hosted the NYC Idealist.org Panel and Grad Fair. A panel of NYU Wagner faculty and administrators discussed the importance of making cross-sector connections, collaborating with peers globally, and committing to a vision to bring about meaningful change. How can you best position yourself professionally to help bring about meaningful change across fields, sectors, and geographic boundaries?

What is the current state of public service – locally, nationally, and globally? What makes a great public service leader? How can you prepare yourself for a career in public service? These questions and more were answered in this dynamic discussion.
