Mission Statement

Wagner College is a private liberal arts school in New York City. Its beautiful 105-acre campus on Staten Island is home to a close-knit community of 2,200 bright students. Manhattan, with access to high-profile internships and urban adventures, is just a ferry ride away.
Wagner's nationally-recognized academic program, theWagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts, combines learning communities with service learning, internships, and research. Students graduate with skills that employers value.
High-Impact Education
The high-impact practices of the Wagner Plan encourage learning outside of the classroom, meaningful interactions with faculty and fellow students, collaboration with diverse people, and frequent and substantive feedback. Participation in these practices can be life-changing! 
Learning Communities
Students take three learning communities (LCs) at Wagner — theFirst-Year Program, Intermediate Learning Community, and Senior Learning Community. These small classes combine two disciplines and a high level of experiential learning. Students take the knowledge of the classroom and apply it to real-world problems and sophisticated research.
Internships or Field Experiences
Internships provide important hands-on learning and career preparation. Many students have an internship every semester, and these can turn into full-time jobs. The Center for Academic and Career Engagement works closely with students to help them find dynamic internships in Manhattan and beyond. Placements include CBS Corporation, Clinton Foundation, Citigroup, Conde Nast, Georgetown University Hospital, Goldman Sachs, Greenpeace USA, Madison Square Garden, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and New York Yankees.
Research with Faculty
Within our small classes, students build lasting relationships with faculty and often conduct research projects together. The senior learning community is a culminating experiential project, leading to a substantial written project and presentation. 
Service Learning
We are a national leader in community engagement, serving as a model for education that connects teaching and learning with public work in our broader community. Programs like the Bonner Leaders Program fosters community building, international perspectives, civic engagement, and social justice among participants. We work closely with Port Richmond, a nearby community with a rapidly growing immigrant population, on education, economic development, immigration, health, and arts and culture projects.
