50 Years of Empowering the Greater Good

The story of Walden University is the story of effecting change. In 1970, our founders established the university on the belief that higher education should be more accessible so that more people could make the world a better place. That ideal has driven us ever since, leading to innovations, expanded opportunities, and countless student, alumni, and faculty success stories. It’s a history worth celebrating—and retelling.
