Walter obtained a doctorate in philosophy from the former United States International University, which has since merged to form Alliant International University. He has worked as an academic at several universities throughout the Micronesia region since 1986, within and outside the FSM. In 2006, Walter joined the faculty of the School of Business and Public Administration of the University of Guam, where he has focused on expanding programs and curriculum for students of Chuukese descent.
In January 2011, newly inaugurated Guam Governor Eddie Calvo appointed Walter to the Guam Education Board. Calvo was forced to withdraw Walter's nomination, however, because he was not a U.S. citizen.
