Thank you for everything that you have done in 2017 to help make NYU Wagner a stronger, more vibrant, and impactful community.


There are several ways to invest your time and energy in the Wagner community. A few options include:

  • Become an Alumni Ambassador—shape the future of NYU Wagner by recruiting prospective students to apply, and encouraging admitted students to attend.
  • Recruit @ Wagner—You understand that Wagner alumni hit the ground running. Post jobs, internships or fellowships on our Career Directory. Help OCS establish an internship program with your employer. Attend a career fair or host an information session. Your support is invaluable.
  • Facilitate Connections—Do you know an innovative public service leader who should speak at Wagner? Are you working with a leading researcher who can help enhance our curricula? Alumni, and the connections they facilitate, play a critical role in keeping Wagner at the forefront of innovative public service around the world.
  • Engage a Capstone Team—Engage a group of students, over the course of an academic year, to research important issues and identify strategic growth opportunities.
