General Information About Wagner College
Wagner College achieves this mission through the implementation and enhancement of The Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts. The Plan is predicated on a method of integrated learning. Specifically, the Plan relies on the integration of liberal arts and professional education with experiential learning. The breadth and width of the liberal arts provide a wider and more cosmopolitan understanding of diversity of cultures, historical epochs, differing values and systems of human organization as well as ethical and moral dilemmas. Professional education emphasizes applied learning in business, education, and nursing which emphasize conceptualization design, field practice, assessment evaluation and revision. The integration of these two powerful learning paradigms best prepares students for positions of effective and responsible leadership in their chosen professions and to the various publics served by them. Preparing students for leadership requires a coherent, efficient and effective educational program and a focused Faculty and Administration, supported by an equally committed Board of Trustees.
