Become a Social Change Agent

Our commitment to service, year-round.

Since its founding, Walden University has been committed to enacting positive social change through service. As we celebrate Walden’s 16th Global Days of Service, we’re ready to make an even greater impact in 2021! Last year, our community rose to the challenge by contributing supplies, funds, and their time to support our causes: youth development, equity in education, and community organizing. We’re excited to see how our community shows up again this year!

Want to get involved?
Here are three ways you can help:

  • Complete a virtual service project independently.
  • Register for a virtual service project sponsored by a Walden community member or group.
  • Develop a virtual service project for others.
