The purpose of the Walden University Divine Nine Alliance (DNA) is to provide members of the Divine Nine Greek Letter organizations with opportunities for professional development, networking, and mentorship. This will be fulfilled through collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs, Residencies Team, Center for Social Change, Career Planning and Development and Alumni Relations to develop professional development, mentoring and networking opportunities for members of the Divine Nine Greek Letter fraternities and sororities and to impact positive social change in Walden communities through collaborating with non-profit organizations. These efforts will be facilitated through a faculty-student leadership structure consisting of verified members of Divine Nine organizations. This mission will be advanced by modeling excellence through leadership, mentorship, and citizenship on the quest to impact positive social change globally across the Walden community.
Seven members of the Divine Nine Alliance participated in Read Across America in Georgia, Ohio, North Carolina, and Washington, DC. Members, along with a delegation of six high school students, read to elementary school students. Some members also donated books on behalf of DNA.
“It was such an honor and great pleasure to spend most of the day with my daughter’s 3rd grade class for Read Across America Day not only as a parent, but also as a new Divine Nine Alliance member and with Charity Adams, DNA’s staff advisor,” said Carmen Conley, communications chair.
