Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

At NYU Wagner, we grapple with issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion in everything that we do. It's a collective work in progress. By committing to it, we believe we can build better solutions to our toughest social challenges.

NYU Wagner is committed to promoting the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in public service and to bringing an EDI lens to the various domains that shape our institutional culture and help advance our mission. We know that markers of difference 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.

We have a deep and long-standing commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. As a school of public service, we embody these values through four domains:

  • Institutional practice

  • The educational experience

  • A diverse community

  • Wagner in the world
