Executive Summary (DATA)
Walden University’s DATA project (Demonstrating Accountability, Transparency, and Assessment) provides detailed information about Walden’s students as well as student learning, student and alumni satisfaction, and the social impact of students and alumni in their communities and workplaces.
DATA is part of Walden’s ongoing commitment to communicate information about who its students are, what they are expected to learn at Walden, and how they are applying this knowledge to advance their careers and effect positive social change. The following information is a snapshot of the larger project that can be found in full at www.WaldenU.edu/DATA. More information on student achievement can be found here: www.WaldenU.edu/legal/consumer-information.

Walden graduate students are 43% black, 37% white, and 9% are Hispanic or Latino, while 44% of undergraduates are white, 36% are black, and 10% are Hispanic or Latino. Walden students continue to be most heavily represented in the 30–39 age demographic (34%), followed by those ages 40–49 (28%), but there is also significant representation among those ages 25–29 (15%) and 50–64 (18%).
