At the entire fraternity of the Walden University, social change has become an integral part of the institution’s philosophy. In fact, the commitment has been clearly included in the university’s mission that promises to pursue a positive social change (Walden University., 2016). Therefore, all the students, the alumni, staff, and faculties live to impact change, especially to the people who live around and in the world at large. As a member of the larger university fraternity, I have realized my position as an agent for social change in the areas of scholarly work, applied, and in inspired change.
Advocacy and Making Social Change
By working in collaboration with the leadership and fellow students, I have had the opportunity to participate in curriculum development and assessment programs for the scholarly change. Moreover, by actively engaging in the interdisciplinary research for improving the cultures, organizations, and the entire fraternity, then the initiative impacts of changing the scholarly society at large (Gross, 2015). On the other hand, during the global days of service, all the participants actively transform the neighborhood of the school for common good. Therefore, as part of the Walden University community, I find pleasure engaging in such an exercise for applying change as often as possible. Finally, by contributing to the university blogs and feature stories, I get the opportunity to further the mission by initiating a difference to the society. Such compositions are readily and easily accessed even beyond the borders of the university, hence stimulating change in the society (Gross, 2015). Therefore, the participation and engagement in activities aimed to promote common transformation enable me to stand as an advocate for the school mission.
Evidently, the commitment towards effecting collective difference as has been the mission of the Walden University cuts across the entire school fraternity. Therefore, students are actively involved in advocacy and living by the mission. As a student, I have engaged in inspiring and applying change through active participation and in scholarly change
