For the purpose of your face-to-face academic event, Walden will be utilizing hotel meeting room, convention center and/or hotel suite meeting space as the primary location for your academic sessions. Due to the layout of the meeting room space, transitioning short distances and/or the use of elevators, stairways or escalators to/from residency session locations may be required.
In addition, other groups or organizations (private or public, for-profit or non-profit) may be offering an event in meeting spaces adjacent to spaces dedicated for the Walden academic event. Due to privacy regulations, Walden is not provided other event or group names until arrival at the venue. Walden does not endorse any event, group or organization hosting events in meeting spaces shared with Walden University. Additionally, as you are acting as a representative of Walden University while attending your academic event, you are expected to comply with standards of professional conduct as specified in the Walden University Student Handbook.
