Thousands of Graduates Celebrate Walden University Winter 2023 Commencement
Close to 3,0001 graduates celebrated, in person or virtually, earning their degrees during Walden University’s 68th commencement. The milestone ceremonies recognized students who earned either bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degrees in fields like nursing, counseling, social work, education, and management, among others. Nearly 2,0002 graduates marked the special milestone in person at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida, while about 800 students participated in a virtual commencement ceremony. In a new Walden Hooding Ceremony tradition, graduates had the opportunity to place the symbolic hood on their fellow doctoral candidates, creating a hooding chain and providing an unforgettable moment for the graduating class.
The new graduates join a network of more than 174,000 alums who have transformed themselves into scholar-practitioners, effecting positive social change in their professions, careers, and communities. For more than 50 years, Walden University’s mission has been to deliver high-quality, flexible educational opportunities to students seeking to improve their lives and the world around them.
17,011 is the number of conferred graduates, as stated by the Registrar’s office, which includes some graduates from earlier graduating classes who may or may not attend the commencement ceremony.
2The in-person ceremony included graduates with degrees conferred between May 4, 2022 – December 7, 2022
