Criminal Justice Association (CJA)

The Criminal Justice Association (CJA) is a student-run club which allows anyone interested in crime and justice to get together for fun and educational events. 
The CJA gives students the chance to earn leadership experience by holding an office and working to plan events for campus and the larger community. 

In recent years the CJA has hosted speeches by Chief Koval of Madison Police Department, former Chief Noble Wray, DEA Agents, WI Department of Justice Detectives, Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney, and many noteworthy academics who study crime, such as Dr. Alice Goffman and Dr. Cesar Rebellon.
