The history of Wagner begins over one hundred years ago, in 1883, with the founding of the Lutheran Proseminary of Rochester, N.Y. With just six students, housed in the second story of a private home, the school began its mission of preparing future Lutheran ministers for admission to seminary. Wagner received the name it bears today shortly after its founding. 


We are a national leader in community engagement, serving as a model for education that connects teaching and learning with public work in our broader community. Programs like the Bonner Leaders Program fosters community building, international perspectives, civic engagement, and social justice among participants. We work closely with Port Richmond, a nearby community with a rapidly growing immigrant population, on education, economic development, immigration, health, and arts and culture projects.


Within our small classes, students build lasting relationships with faculty and often conduct research projects together. The senior learning community is a culminating experiential project, leading to a substantial written project and presentation. Read about students’ research in microbiology, anthropology, and more.


The Center for Academic and Career Engagement (CACE) serves students as the primary locus of support and advisement services, whether that advisement comes in the form of academic, career, or disability services. CACE advisors facilitate a student’s transition to Wagner, selection of the major, organization of their individual Wagner Plan, and the development of their skills and resources in pursuit of personal and professional goals.
