Walden University Scholars of Change

Walden University Scholars of Change

The Scholars of Change program began in 2009 when Walden University invited students and alumni to help bring the university’s social change mission to life by submitting short videos demonstrating how they were applying their Walden education and experiences to effect positive social change in their communities and around the globe. The videos demonstrate a learning experience that emphasizes Walden’s scholar-practitioner model, built on the belief that knowledge is most valuable when it is put to use in the interest of the greater good.
