Walden University is a powerful social change agent in the lives of its students as well as the global community.
Walden’s accreditation was the most important factor in deciding where to go. Employers and community members need to be assured you received a high-quality education, experience, and degree.
Soon after graduating, I was thrilled to join the faculty of the first fully online social work program at Walden University as a contributing member. In that role, I was able to set the tone of a scholar-practitioner.
