Diversity and Social Justice at NYU Wagner
Differences matter. Understanding this reality is one of the many factors that shape our approach to public service education at NYU Wagner. We know that race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, disability status and many other aspects of personal identity shape the way we see the world, the way resources are distributed, the way policies are made, the way boundaries are drawn and the way institutions are managed.
