Criminal Justice Honor Society

This project will fund honor society students interested in presenting papers and participating in national conferences and other honor society related activities.

Alpha Phi Sigma is the only nationally recognized honor society for students in the criminal justice sciences. The society recognizes academic excellence by undergraduates as well as graduate students of criminal justice. To become a local member, a student must contact one of the chapter officers, or attend a meeting, and pay the local chapter dues. Once a local chapter member, a student can begin working towards becoming a national member.
