Student & Faculty Spotlight



Wagner College was one of only 50 colleges throughout the country that was included in a highly exclusive new guide to best-value schools published by Princeton Review, “Colleges That Create Futures: 50 Schools That Launch Careers by Going Beyond the Classroom”
The New York Times ranked Wagner College #6 on a list of the highest “value added” colleges in the nation. "Common Sense" columnist James B. Stewart worked with Brookings Institution fellow Jonathan Rockwell on a scale measuring the value added by a college to what its students bring with them to campus.
Wagner grads' salaries in top 14% nationwide on PayScale 2016-17 College Salary Report
For the fifth year in a row, Wagner College appeared on the Forbes 2017 America's Top Colleges list. The Forbes list emphasizes “the direct benefits a college or university provides its students,” looking at things like graduation rates and alumni salaries rather than incoming freshmen SAT scores. Among the three colleges on Staten Island, Wagner College was ranked the best value.
Wagner College was named one of America’s best colleges in the Princeton Review’s 2018 edition of its “Best 382 Colleges” guide. Special kudos went to the Wagner College Theatre program, which was ranked Number 4 in the nation.
