Provost's Office

Welcome to Wagner College. I am very proud of our faculty, staff, and students and feel certain that you will understand why as you learn more about Wagner College, its programs, and its future. Academic excellence at Wagner includes deep understanding of content areas and disciplines as well as ability for each student to develop key skills in all their classes.

The Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts, our signature curricular program for undergraduate students, emphasizes integrated learning and reflective practice supplemented by experiential placements within the community, the region, and internationally.

Similarly, our graduate programs in accounting, business administration, education, media management, nursing, microbiology, and physician assistant studies emphasize leadership and academic excellence in contexts outside the classroom.

You will find that the faculty at Wagner are deeply dedicated to teaching, advising, and working closely with our students as well as pursuing scholarship in their disciplines. The principal mission of the Wagner administration is to support the educational programs of the College, the work of the faculty, and the learning of our students. My responsibility, as provost and vice president for academic affairs, is to oversee this process, which is as inherently rewarding as it is challenging.

—   Interim Provost Nicholas Richardson, Ph.D.
