Chuck received a B.S. degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1969 and a PhD. from Adelphi University in 1974. He was a Professor of Psychology for 44 years at St. Bonaventure University. For several years he was the Chair of the Psychology Department and Assistant Dean of Arts and Sciences. He was a strong promoter of faculty development and teaching excellence at the University and at the national level having served as an affiliate scholar at the National Center for Teaching Learning & Assessment and as a consultant to Foundations and over 100 colleges in the United States and Canada. Dr. Walker published a lot of his research over a long career that started with investigations on rumor and gossip and ended with inquiries on psychological well-being, particularly on the experience of social flow. His students co-authored most of his published work. Because of his later research on happiness, he was invited as a speaker at the Global Summit on Human Well-Being and asked by the Prime Minister of Bhutan to be a panelist on Human Happiness and Well-being at the United Nations. Upon retirement he has given more attention to his lifetime hobby of photography. He was the President of the Twin-Tier Camera Club and is a member of the Photographic Society of America. Also, during retirement, he has continued his service work for the Charter for Compassion, Enchanted Mountains Village, and, as well, local outdoor clubs and organizations that promote bicycling, kayaking, Nordic skiing and other outdoor activities.
