The CJSA was organized in 2005 with a number of goals in mind. We wanted to create
opportunities for students to learn more about the field of criminal justice. Through
the CJSA students have the opportunity to explore career opportunities and make professional
contacts. The association also promotes student and faculty interactions. Membership
into the CJSA is free and is open to all CJ majors and minors. All this and we have
a lot of fun too!
Although not required, members of the CJSA can choose to join two separate national
organizations. The first and the largest is our chapter of the American Criminal Justice
Association–Lambda Alpha Epsilon ( ACJA-LAE). Originally founded as a professional law enforcement fraternity, the ACJA is now
open to all criminal justice professionals. Take a look at the history of the ACJA and we’re sure you’ll want to become a part of this organization. You should also
take a look at the emblem and its symbolism if you’re interested in what ACJA-LAE is all about.
