Fairmont State University Criminal Justice students recently took several top honors at the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences/Alpha Phi Sigma National Conference in Dallas.
“Sustainable Justice” was the theme of the 2012 Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences conference, which took place in New York City from March 13-17. Thirteen students from Fairmont State University’s Alpha Phi Sigma group attended the conference. Alpha Phi Sigma is the national criminal justice honor society, which was recognized over 25 years ago by ACJS as the future of the organization and holds a conference in conjunction with ACJS every year. While Alpha Phi Sigma offers its own activities, the students are free to participate in any of the ACJS events.
Fairmont State University faculty and students from the College of Liberal Arts attended the annual conference of the West Virginia Criminal Justice Educators’ Association on Nov.
