Latanya Walker takes new position
Beginning July 10, Latanya Walker will leave her position as assistant director of the Upward Bound program at Virginia Tech and will begin her new position as director of alumni relations for diversity, inclusion, and community engagement with both the Virginia Tech Alumni Association and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
Walker listens during a leadership exercise.
“As hard as it is to leave my students, I am absolutely thrilled to begin working with the folks at the Alumni Association and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. I can’t wait to join the team,” she said.
In addition to her many valuable contributions to Upward Bound, Walker also contributed to a communications workshop offered first within Outreach and International Affairs and later to the entire university community. See an excerpt from her talk on academic jargon here.
