Held twice a year in January and July, the Walden community celebrates student success and accomplishment. Walden administrators, faculty, and staff, as well as graduates’ friends and family members numbering in the thousands, gather together to recognize the current class of graduates. Walden’s commencement ceremonies host a number of inspiring speakers, such as civic leader Benjamin Jealous, former Mexican president Ernesto Zedillo, former president of Costa Rica and Nobel Laureate Oscar Arias Sanchez, and former Secretary of State Condolezza Rice.
Experience the excitement of commencement. Witness the pinnacle of academic success.
