About Us Walden

About Us

Walden University is the story of effecting change. In 1970, our founders established the university on the notion that higher education should be more accessible to more people. 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.
