Alpha Phi Sigma, the National Criminal Justice Honor Society has a local chapter, Sigma Phi Alpha, here at FIU. Membership in the organization is extended to undergraduate and graduate students in the criminal justice field, as well as to juris doctorate students. We strive to strike a balance between social consciousness, scholastic responsibility, and community service. Alpha Phi Sigma is more than just a prestigious honor to place on one’s resume; it is an active organization that encourages member participation in various events throughout the year.
The Mission of Alpha Phi Sigma is to promote analytical thinking, rigorous scholarship and lifelong learning; to keep abreast of the advances in scientific research; to elevate the ethical standards of the criminal justice professions and to sustain in the public mind the benefit and necessity of education and professional training.
Alpha Phi Sigma is the only National Criminal Justice Honor Society that is a certified member of the Association of College Honor Societies and affiliated with the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences.
