Dr. Lori LaCivita

Program Director, MS and PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and PsyD in Behavioral Health Leadership

Walden’s core values and vision that focus on social change resonated with what I was about.

I have recommended Walden to several colleagues over the years. The flexibility that Walden offers is great and it’s respected for its accreditation.

Now that I’ve earned my doctorate, I feel like I could do just about anything in my field. I have the expertise to do it.
