The Criminal Justice & Forensic Science Association is a co-curricular organization comprised of criminal justice majors, forensic science majors and faculty from both disciplines. The Association provides an informal setting in which students and faculty can discuss ideas, current events and careers within both the criminal justice and forensic science fields. The organization also provides students with the opportunity to visit facilities and institutions related to criminal justice or forensic science. All criminal justice and forensic science majors are encouraged to join the association, as well as participate in community activities such as Adopt-a-Highway.
