The IMPACT Scholars Civic Network



Civic engagement is at the heart of the mission of Wagner College. The IMPACT Scholars Civic Network is designed for students who have a passion for others as embodied through community service and a desire to continue and advance their commitment to civic engagement. Inspiring mutuality, participation, and civic transformation (known as “IMPACT”) shape this Wagner community network. Program participants work with the Center for Leadership and Community Engagement to be facilitators, connectors, and conveners that seek to spur collaboration among Wagner students, faculty, staff, and the Staten Island community. In an effort to deepen student learning, sustain civic participation, and bring about positive social change, the program provides participants with opportunities to explore their understanding of citizenship, their responsibility to contribute to the public good, and to access the necessary resources to aid in the development of their own civic identity. This is accomplished through a combination of experiences that include but are not limited to:

  • Community service projects
  • Community internships
  • Explorations of scholarly work
  • Participation in regional and national conferences
  • Professional development
  • Focused workshops
  • Training
  • Lectures
  • Mentorships

Residential students involved in the program are encouraged to live in the Civic Engagement Community in Harbor View Hall. Additionally, students involved in the program receive the benefit of early class registration, priority service placement, and a notation of completion on their transcript. Each semester, IMPACT Scholars host the IMPACT Summit which includes dozens of students who come from across the spectrum of the student community to try to figure out how to build bridges with one another and with the community.
