Tau Upsilon Alpha

Beta Gamma Chapter


Tau Upsilon Alpha is a national honor society for students, alumni, and faculty in the field of human services. The purposes of the society are to honor academic excellence; to foster lifelong learning, leadership, and development; and to promote excellence in service to humanity. TUA is an extension of the National Organization of Human Services (NOHS). Review the TUA national website for more information. The ODU chapter was formed in 2011 and is currently being advised by Dr. Kathleen Levingston.

The honor society is for Human Services students who have at least a 3.25 GPA and have completed at least 2 semesters at ODU. It is a distinction for those who have demonstrated a dedication to learning and hopefully a lifelong commitment to our field. Being a member of an honor society may open doors to potential scholarship and academic opportunities as well as become a way to get more involved with our department. Once you are a member, you are a member for life, so you can participate even after you graduate.

TUA has taken an active role in assisting young people in crisis by sponsoring the Princess Anne High School Safe Place Site. Our $150 annual donation enables Princess Anne High School to provide a safe haven for youth in crisis and links them to the resources provided by Seton Youth Shelters. Safe Place is a national youth outreach program that creates a network of Safe Place locations through friendly businesses, schools, fire stations, libraries, YMCAs and other appropriate public buildings that display the distinctive yellow and black Safe Place sign. Our annual donation is used for site evaluation and program compliance, supplies for maintaining the site, Safe Place sign maintenance, and training of Safe Place Site staff.
