Alumni, students, and faculty around the world positively impacted their communities.

January 2013

Alumni, students, and faculty in more than 700 cities in 15 countries volunteered Oct. 6, during the seventh annual Global Day of Service. They participated in more than 150 community service projects that ranged from health screenings to cleaning up roads, beaches, and parks. Below, we highlight two events:

Dr. Chantrell Anita Bruton ’12 led a project titled “A Book Lover’s Birthday Bash!” in Cairo, Ga., to spark a love of reading in elementary school children, provide parents with teaching resources, and celebrate her birthday. “Walden’s mission of social change motivated people to join a fun and meaningful literacy event for children in my community,” she says.

Monica Dunnagan ’11 led a festival that benefited Mercy Housing in Lynnwood, Wash., an organization that provides affordable housing for families, seniors, and people with special needs. “Walden’s commitment to social change has not only inspired and encouraged my studies, but has also inspired others from all corners of the globe,” she says.

We know you volunteer all year. Visit the Walden Service Network to log your hours and find new opportunities at www.WaldenU.edu/servicenetwork.
