You are an inspiration. When I read about your achievements, see award nominations from your peers, or talk to you or your family members as they rave about you, I am reminded that what we do at Walden is special. As you climb from one milestone to the next, we want to continue to celebrate with you, which is why I want to highlight a trio of accolades that showcase our incredible community.

Your family and friends are your cheerleaders and champions. We want to give them the recognition they deserve. I’m proud to announce our new series of Above and Beyond stories. To nominate someone for recognition, please submit a short, one-page essay that shares examples of how your family member or friend supported and inspired you to myWaldenImpact@waldenu.edu. Your nomination must also include your full name, graduate ID, the degree(s) you earned, your email address, phone number, and full address. Please also share the full name of the person you are nominating, their relationship to you, and their email address and phone number. All family members and friends who are nominated for a published story will receive a letter of thanks, a certificate for their support, and a copy of Walden magazine.

The Outstanding Alumni Award recognizes graduates who exemplify the scholar-practitioner model and have made exceptional contributions to their professions or communities. We’ve featured recent recipients in past issues of the magazine, such as Dr. Jonas Nguh ’13, Tia Campbell ’08, and Dr. Gary Bickford ’97. This year, we received the highest number of nominations in the award’s 11-year history. This is a fantastic tribute to our alumni’s success and to your ongoing support of one another. Look for their stories in upcoming issues.

Finally, we know that your research never stops. You consistently share your latest publications or professional presentations. For that reason, we established the Presidential Alumni Research Dissemination Award. Please share your accomplishments for recognition.

All of you are Walden’s best ambassadors. You are hard at work improving your own communities and challenging the way we nurture each other. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the extraordinary graduates featured in this issue and keep sharing the amazing work that motivates you each day.

Sincerely,
Cynthia G. Baum, PhD
