Information Collected
The Office of Alumni Relations, in cooperation with the Office of Institutional Advancement, maintains a database of biographical information about alumni and friends. The information maintained includes:

Use and Sharing of Information
The Office of Institutional Advancement is committed to ensuring your privacy. The release of information for political fundraising purposes is prohibited. Personal information may be released if required to do so by law, College policy, or contractual obligation. Under very limited circumstances, information may be shared with individuals or companies outside of Wagner College to support the mission and purpose of Wagner College and the Wagner College Alumni Association.

Through the alumni affinity program, the Wagner College Alumni Association partners with outside vendors to offer valuable services and benefits to alumni, such as an alumni travel program or insurance program. In such instances, the vendor must agree to use the information only for purposes approved by Wagner College, and the sale or transfer of the information is strictly prohibited. Information provided to the vendor is limited to the basic information needed to contact alumni for the designated purpose of the service/program. Alumni have the option to opt-out of all communications from outside vendors.

If you make a gift or register for an event online using your credit card, this information is stored in our secure database so that we have a record of your gift/event registration history, and for issuing a receipt of your transaction. A gift or event registration is processed electronically by a secure credit card processing service and information transmitted is protected using Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL encryption). Gifts made to Wagner College are shared in aggregate for reporting purposes, such as to the Council for the Support and Advancement of Education, Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report. Annually Wagner College releases its Annual Report listing the names of all donors for the past fiscal year. Donors have the option to make their gift anonymously. Event registrants have the option to not list their name in the list of attendees for a particular event.

Basic information, such as name, class year, degree, city, state, e-mail and phone are displayed in your online alumni profile. This information can be displayed or hidden at your discretion. Only registered users of Wagner Connect, the online alumni community, can view this information. Alumni can opt-out entirely from displaying their profile. Learn more about Wagner Connect below.
