Walden University Awards:
Outstanding Alumni Award

Walden celebrates the accomplishments of the university community—students, new graduates and those who supported them, alumni, and faculty—through a number of annual awards.


Since 2001, Walden has recognized the achievements of our graduates through the Outstanding Alumni Award. This honor is given each summer to one alum who exemplifies Walden’s mission to effect positive social change through contributions to his or her profession, discipline, or community.
