Our hearts are deeply saddened for those impacted by the wrath of recent hurricanes the Caribbean and Southeast U.S. We hope those of you who are impacted get the help and support you need as you recover and move forward. Please know our thoughts are with you. While Walden is using its resources to support you and others in recent hurricane affected areas, it remains our mission to help you achieve your personal and academic goals. We put you first by offering quality academic residency experiences that help you make progress in your Walden degree program.
Thankfully, our partners at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel have reported the venue did not suffer any damages from Hurricane Maria. The PhD, DHA, and DrPH Puerto Rico residency occurring November 30-December 3, 2017 is taking place as scheduled.
Walden University offers academic residencies at various domestic and international locations. The domestic locations provide an opportunity for students all over the world to travel to the United States. The international residencies promote global citizenship, expand students’ cultural competencies and provide alternative options for accessibility. These residencies are designed to allow students to engage, interact, and connect in diverse environments beyond U.S. domestic locations. Past locations include Barcelona, Spain; Istanbul, Turkey; London, England; and Paris, France.
Please note: All 2017 residency events are open for registration. The calendar of January through April 2018 required residencies in the U.S. is available and registration for these events will open on October 18, 2017. The calendar of international locations, capstone intensive retreats, and PhD professional conferences is still under development. Look for those dates/locations by the end of October.
Walden's U.S. residencies in 2017 are typically held in Arizona, California, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, and Texas. Please see your program specific calendar for available locations.
