Academic Residencies
The Walden Residency
Academic residencies are face-to-face sessions that provide students with the
opportunity to meet and network with other Walden students, staff, and faculty.
In many cases, students will encounter peers from different degree programs,
disciplines, and locations, providing them with a truly cross-disciplinary
environment in which to expand their perspectives and share best practices.
Residencies are held throughout the year in various locations around the United
States and, for certain programs, in international locations.
At academic residencies, students have an opportunity to network with other
students and develop the support and skills they need to complete their program.
