The mission of Academic Advisement in the Center for Academic and Career Engagement is to advocate for student success, retention and timely graduation through purposeful academic relationships and community building. At the heart of this is our collaborative work with you, the student, as you attempt to find your own answers to the question “What’s Your Wagner Plan,” a 4-step process of self-inquiry, major and career exploration, reflection and decision making, and strategic action.
Faculty are the primary advisors for students; the CACE advisors serve as secondary advising support should a faculty member be on sabbatical leave, or is inaccessible over the summer months. CACE advisors may also be assigned as a new transfer student’s primary advisor before that student declares a major.
Wagner students, make your appointment here. If you don’t have a wagner.edu email address, please email email@example.com or call 718-390-3181 for appointment information.
