Criminal Justice Student Clubs & Organizations

2016 2017OfficersThe main organization for Criminal Justice majors and for those interested in the criminal justice field is the Criminal Justice Organization (CJO).  Officers can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The CJO meets regularly, often featuring a guest speaker.  Examples have been CJ faculty as well as professionals currently working in the field of criminal justice within a myriad of agencies.  The CJO also teams up with the Program in Criminal Justice to host the annual "Mega" C.J. Alumni and Career Networking Event, held in the spring semester.  The information is typically posted in the Announcements section of the CJ website.

 

In addition to the CJO, the Program in Criminal Justice recognizes outstanding academic scholars in its major vis-a-vis the Criminal Justice Honor Society: Alpha Phi Sigma.  The CJ Honor Society has an e-board of officers, and contact information can be found below.  Invitations to the CJ Honor Society are disseminated to students meeting the eligibility criteria on a semester basis (once in the fall and once in the spring).  There is an induction ceremony for all members who have joined the CJ Honor Society, held in the spring semester.

 

Also listed below are some of the student organizations and volunteer opportunities that might be of interest for Criminal Justice majors or those students interested in law, law enforcement, corrections, victimology, or human rights.

Mission:

Incredible opportunities exist with the NJ Department of Corrections to volunteer and increase the educational levels of our students while at the same time learning a tremendous amount about the prison system here in New Jersey.
 
The NJDOC recognizes volunteers as an integral and essential resource toward fulfilling the mission of our organization to better prepare our student/inmates as they re-enter our communities. Accordingly, NJDOC provides an environment where volunteers are valued and respected for their incredible contribution to our mission to better educate our students. Volunteers assist our education staff by tutoring students in the core curriculum subjects.
 
All individuals interested in volunteering must complete a volunteer application, sign the rules form and submit to a background investigation (no cost to volunteer).
