In honor of Wagner’s 100th anniversary on its Staten Island campus, the Office of Communications and Marketing is introducing a renewed version of the College’s official seal in 2018–19.
The new drawing contains the original elements from the seal, which dates back to 1916: A circle that incorporates the name and location of the College, surrounding the overlapping shapes of an open book, a sword, a trumpet, and a palm branch.
The new rendition adds two new elements to the design: 1883, the year of the College’s founding in Rochester, New York; and the monogram “NYC,” acknowledging the importance of New York City as Wagner’s location for the past century.
In keeping with traditional and modern practice, the seal is used only on official documents, presidential events and documents, and high-end products. The diplomas of the class of 2019 will feature the new seal.
