International Student Engagement

As an international student at NYU Wagner, there are a myriad of ways to get involved and engage with the community at NYU and Wagner, including:


Wagner has 25+ student groups that give you a chance to engage in diverse social, educational, and informational programs.  Joining is a great way for you to become more connected and engaged during your graduate school experience. Student groups are structured around professional interests, identity and diversity, and academic program/specialization. 

Below are a handful of identity-based student groups that we would like to highlight. 


Wagner's community comes alive daily with a range of events addressing the most critical issues of our time. Subscribe to the events mailing list

Current students play an integral role in welcoming the incoming class to the Wagner community. Peer advisors share everything from community norms and personal experiences, to insider information -- like the best places to eat and study – all in an effort to make the transition to grad school an easy one.
