Richard Brodsky Named Senior Fellow at NYU Wagner

March 1, 2011

The Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University today announced that former New York Assemblyman Richard Brodsky has joined the school as a Senior Fellow. 

Brodsky will work on developing courses and symposia on a variety of public issues, including governance reform of private and public institutions, national and international capital movement between the private and public sectors, and other matters reflecting his long experience in government.

In addition, he will work cooperatively with other disciplines and elements of the University community, and write and speak on issues of public importance within and outside NYU.  Much of his efforts will focus on the important but under-developed connections between government and other sectors. He also will teach, and has begun to do so this semester, co-teaching a graduate class on Public Policy and The Arts.

"I am delighted that Richard Brodsky has agreed to join us as Senior Fellow,” said Ellen Schall, Dean of NYU Wagner. “Richard brings enormous experience in the workings of state and local government, a keen understanding of what it takes to bring about change, and, not least, unmatched enthusiasm.”

Brodsky was a Member of the New York State Assembly from 1982 to 2010, and is a graduate of Brandeis University and Harvard Law School.

“NYU Wagner, as part of a global network university, has a critically important role in educating leaders for public service, he said. “Now, more than ever, we need individuals of the highest caliber, integrity, and training to devote their careers to public life and the public good. I'm delighted to work with the outstanding faculty, administration and student body at one of the world's great universities. My thanks to Dean Schall and the leadership of NYU.”
