Walden’s Chapter

The Alpha Chi chapter of Tau Upsilon Alpha was established in 2013. Under the leadership of Dr. Greg Hickman, faculty advisor; Irena Glover, chapter president; Renata Hedrington Jones, vice president; Domonique Rice, treasurer; and Sherlina Stephens, secretary; with support from Dr. William Barkley, program director, Alpha Chi seeks to expand and support the professional growth and development of Walden human services students. The chapter offers students the opportunity to:

  • Participate in research geared toward addressing current issues facing individuals within human services.
  • Engage in activities that support them in their quest for academic excellence and promoting social change.
  • Network with fellow human services students and faculty at residencies as well as national and regional conferences.
