The Columbia Southern University Criminal Justice Program recently launched its chapter of the American Criminal Justice Association (ACJA) and was presented a charter document.
The ACJA is organized to foster professionalism in law enforcement personnel and agencies, promote professional, academic, and public awareness of criminal justice issues, and encourage the establishment and expansion of higher education and professional training in criminal justice.
The CSU chapter, Chi Sigma Upsilon, provides many benefits to its members (current students, alumni, and faculty) such as scholastic honor awards, access to a national criminal justice job bank, annual national and regional conferences, a national scholarly research paper competition, and more.
Membership in the ACJA is composed of individuals employed in the criminal justice system or taking a course of study in criminal justice at an accredited college or university at the time the application is submitted.
If you are an alumnus, student, or faculty member of CSU and meet the membership criteria above, you may join the Chi Sigma Upsilon chapter of the ACJA. To do so, contact CSU professor Jamie Gauthier, ACJA faculty advisor, at Jamie.Gauthier@columbiasouthern.edu.
CSU offers online associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in various fields including criminal justice, fire administration, occupational safety and health, and business administration.
