Our alumni are supported by an active alumni association, which keeps graduates connected to students, faculty, and fellow alumni of the greater Walden community. Alumni participate in regional activities and remain engaged through the Alumni Ambassador Program, myWaldenAlumni–our alumni portal—and the university’s signature publication, Walden magazine, which highlights the achievements of our alumni twice a year.
Effecting positive change is at the heart of the Walden University mission. Walden students are a diverse community of working professionals who are more than just scholars—they become agents of social change. As a student, you gain the knowledge and skills to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom to the real world and make a difference in your life and your community. Courses focus on serving the greater good and explore strategies you can use to promote positive change for individuals and society.
Outside of the classroom, Walden brings the learning community together to effect social change on a larger scale. Programs like Global Days of Service and the Scholars of Change contest bring together students and alumni to raise awareness of the ability of one person to make a big difference, and the Walden Service Network serves as a resource for the community to find and volunteer for service projects.
