Wagner College was cited for innovation in the field of community awareness.
“Many educators are starting to appreciate the need for student activism in their respective communities,” said OnlineUniversities.com. “To this end they are creating service learning programs, where students use classroom knowledge to benefit their neighbors. Wagner College is a leader of this movement. The focus here is on ‘connected learning,’ and students must take three learning community courses with associated weekly community volunteer work. By graduation students will have completed hundreds of hours of community service. Students are encouraged to take an Alternative Spring Break of serving instead of partying. Wagner’s approach to learning-by-doing is a truly innovative way to produce well-rounded graduates.”
