Week 6 Discussion 1 Foundations

Discussion: Walden University’s Role in Your Professional and Academic Goals

As a doctoral student in the Public Policy and
Administration program, your professional goals may include facilitating
social change on a local, regional, or even global scale. One of Walden
University’s goals is to help its students realize their own unique
visions for social change. One of the first steps toward realizing your
vision is articulating that vision. Understanding how Walden University
and the activities you complete on your Walden journey relate to your
long-term goal may help you achieve your goal of being a successful
Walden candidate. For these reasons, this Discussion asks you to share
with your peers your vision for social change as well as how you believe
Walden’s vision and mission and your upcoming attendance at academic
residency relate to your personal goal. You may be inspired by the
visions of your colleagues or of the students in the Scholars of Change
videos (found under Optional Resources in this week’s Learning
Resources) who have begun to realize their visions for social change.
