Return to: Section 2. About Walden University  

For more than 45 years, Walden University has provided an engaging learning experience for working professionals. As an accredited institution, our mission of producing scholar-practitioners has attracted a community of extraordinary students and faculty, all sharing a common desire to make a positive social impact—to make a difference.

Highlights of Walden’s commitment include:

  • Our diverse and comprehensive core curriculum: Walden University provides our students with the intellectual foundation necessary to see the interrelationships among the central ideas and means of expression that are specific to the disciplines. This foundation supplies a context for knowledge and makes possible the cross-fertilization of ideas to enhance creativity, innovation, and problem solving.
  • Student-centeredness: Walden’s faculty and staff are devoted to helping you, our students, balance your education with your personal and professional lives. Walden’s library, tutoring, and other student services also provide essential resources.
  • Real-world application: Degree programs are developed by scholar-practitioners who continually assess courses to make sure they are current and relevant.
  • International perspectives: Walden University is part of the Laureate International Universities global network of 70 accredited campus-based and online universities in 25 countries, serving more than 1,000,000 students around the world. As a student in the Laureate International Universities network, you have an unprecedented opportunity to expand your international outlook and gain insights that you can apply directly to your professions.
  • Positive social change: Walden believes that knowledge is most valuable when put to use for the greater good. Students, alumni, and faculty are committed to improving the human and social condition by creating and applying ideas to promote the development of individuals, communities, and organizations as well as society as a whole.
  • Scholar-practitioner model: Walden’s goal is to help students become scholar-practitioners by challenging them to integrate scholarly research with their own expertise as skilled practitioners in their fields.
