The department is a chartered campus center of Tau Upsilon Alpha (TYA) National Organization of Human Services (NOHS) National Honor Society. TYA is the acronym of the Greek transliteration of the motto for the honor society: Excellence in Service to Humanity. Each chapter evaluates qualified students and issues invitations to membership.
The purpose of the Coalition is to bring together students from different fields of study that relate to human services. The Coalition provides career development, professional education, and networking opportunities for its members.
