Thank you to the students, alumni, faculty, and staff who participated in Walden’s 2018 Global Days of Service! With more than 400 participants in events in Maryland, Minnesota, Texas, and Arizona, the Walden community contributed to projects serving schools, food banks, community centers, animal shelters, and more.

In Baltimore, more than 250 members of the Walden University and Laureate Education family brought much-needed color and life to Beechfield Elementary Middle School by refreshing the teachers lounge, creating Orioles and Ravens cafes, and transforming two classrooms into “Mindful Me” rooms as safe havens for overwhelmed students. The Walden community in Minneapolis participated in six projects throughout the city, while those from the San Antonio office sorted and packed 54,000 pounds of produce, nonperishable food, and household items. In Tempe, employees partnered with United Way to build sheds, tend flower beds, and paint concrete for kids’ activities at a local school for children with developmental delays.

Walden’s annual Global Days of Service is an opportunity to make an impact in neighborhoods around the world and advance the university’s mission of positive social change.
