Criminal Justice Association

There are no shortcuts to receiving anything worthwhile.-John Williams, President-National Scrabble Association-New York

Since 1974, Illinois Valley Community College has sponsored a Criminal Justice Association. This association is open to all criminal justice students. The purpose of the association is to bond with other students and to provide service to the community. Each year the association participates in on and off campus activities such as fund raising, patrol services, community programs, and recreational activities.

Each year the organization at Illinois Valley Community College sponsors a spring banquet. This banquet provides an opportunity for students to mingle with practitioners. At this banquet the criminal justice student of the year, high GPA award winners, and scholarship winners are recognized.
