Religious studies grad earn Ph.D. accolade

Albright College graduate Tayon Swafford ’06 is one of only four doctoral social work candidates named to Indiana University’s 2023 top IUPUI Elite 50 — recognizing the school’s top 50 graduate and professional students.

Selection is based on students who “demonstrate excellence beyond the classroom in areas such as campus leadership, scholarly work and community engagement.”

A student ambassador, Swafford majored in religious studies at Albright before earning a master’s degree in theology from Vanderbilt and a master’s degree in psychotheraphy and faith at the University of Indiana.
