A Reputable University Dedicated to Making a Difference: Online and Around the World

Here are just some of the things the Walden community is doing to change the world and make a difference:

  • Global Days of Service
    From raising funds to educate underprivileged children in Uganda to providing dental care for young orphans in Costa Rica, our annual Global Days of Service provide an opportunity for the Walden community—faculty, staff, students, and alumni, as well as their friends and family—to donate their time and expertise to make a difference, at home and around the world.
  • Walden Service Network
    Not every online university is brimming with people who want to change the world. That’s why Walden offers a unique—and extensive—volunteer database for its students, alumni, faculty, and staff to find ways to make a difference in their communities. The Walden Service Network helps volunteers find local opportunities, recruit others for community service, and record volunteer hours, enabling the Walden community to put ideals into action by helping others.
  • Mobilize for Good
    As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, Walden University began a Mobilize for Good journey. Each month, the Walden Mobilize for Good RV arrives as a distinctive U.S. city.  While there, they partner with local alumni and give back to the community.  In addition, Walden will host Talks for Good and Acts for Good in cities across the country. Mobilize for Good is just one way Walden is honoring its social change legacy while paving the way for the next generation.

With a well-regarded faculty, inspiring academic programs and an innovative, globally conscious curriculum, Walden is a unique accredited online university that gives students the power to make a difference and change the world.
