"NYU Wagner alumni go above and beyond to support fellow members of the Wagner community. As an alumna, I mentor current students, maintain connections with other alumni, and talk to prospective students...Wagner is a broad school of public service, so a range of public service interests—from urban planning to public finance—is reflected in our alumni network.  If you're exploring different career options, this is a great starting point."
