be a force for good
walden university is a certified b corporation®.
for 50 years, walden has motivated its students to be a force for good. social change is not just something we talk about, it’s who we are. making a positive impact in our communities is what we do.
what is a certified b corporation?
a certified b corporation® (b corp™) is a company that has completed a certification process conducted by a u.s. based nonprofit, b lab®, which determines if a company has met rigorous standards of social and environmental impact, accountability, and transparency assessed against the proprietary criteria established by b-lab®, an independent nonprofit organization.
aligned with the certified b corporation® declaration of interdependence, we believe:
- that we must be the change we seek in the world.
- that all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
- that, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
- to do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are dependent upon one another and thus responsible for one another and future generations.
why did we choose to become a certified b corporation®?
our decision to become a b corp™ was simple: we believe we have a responsibility to make the world a better place.
that’s why walden has joined the growing movement of companies that are dedicated to creating and contributing to real change. collectively, our students, alumni, faculty, and staff are working toward positively impacting the communities we serve and, most importantly, future generations.
