Mission & Vision

The mission of the Walden residency program is to provide students with the opportunity to shape their identities as scholar-practitioners who contribute to their disciplines. Residency students further develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for disciplinary expertise and professional competence.

As part of your residency experience, you will:

  • Conceptualize and develop research that contributes to positive social change.
  • Establish networks of professionals who support and practice scholarly endeavors.
  • Develop and refine practice skills essential to your profession.

Walden’s residencies set a high standard for learning and socialization opportunities using innovative technologies and principles of adult learning to develop scholar-practitioners who think critically and contribute to the greater social good.
