To develop a multi-school, multi-disciplinary network of students, faculty and professionals working to design and implement ways of using technology for citizen engagement

Housed at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University, the GovLab will train graduate students across disciplines and universities to design, build and implement tech-based solutions to pressing problems communities face across the country. Through its project-based learning work, GovLab Academy aims to instill the mindset and skillset required to tackle the pressing need for institutional innovation. Leading experts will train teams of graduate students to work with communities to develop solutions. Knight funding complements a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to study the impact of the academy’s projects and share the lessons learned.
