Read the 2012 Social Change Report

At Walden University, we believe knowledge is most valuable when put to use for the greater good. As part of our efforts to lead and contribute to social change in the U.S. and around the world, we are pleased to release our 2012 Social Change Impact Report.

Now in its second year, the annual report, based on a survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Walden University, provides a diverse global perspective on why adults engage in social change and the roles individuals, nonprofit organizations, government, and the media play in facilitating it.

Key findings from the 2012 Social Change Impact Report include:

  • Global economic conditions impact how adults get involved in positive social change.
  • Individual adults are the driving force behind social change engagement.
  • Adults are more likely to join digital social change conversations than to initiate them.

Effecting positive social change is at the heart of our mission and has been since our founding in 1970. Our hope is that the Social Change Impact Report will spur local, national, and global discussions about the advancement of social change among business and government leaders, educators, healthcare workers, nonprofit organization employees, and those who simply care about making a difference.

The survey results are now available in the second annual Social Change Impact Report.
