Owens Community College Students Inducted Into Lambda Epsilon Tau

Twenty-six Owens Community College students recently were honored for their excellence in the study of criminal justice, earning membership into the Lambda Epsilon Tau Honor Society.

The Lambda Epsilon Tau Honor Society was founded in 1999 as a local association with the goal of promoting the academic scholarship of criminal justice and its professionalism. Affiliated with Lambda Alpha Epsilon and The American Criminal Justice Association, Lambda Epsilon Tau is one of over 190 chapters nationwide, consisting of more than 4,500 members, dedicated to enhancing educational and professional opportunities within the field of criminal justice.

The overall mission of Lambda Epsilon Tau is to improve, promote and stimulate interest and excellence within the study of criminal justice and to promote public awareness of all criminal justice issues.

"Selection to Lambda Epsilon Tau is a prestigious honor that grants an array of academic and professional opportunities to its members," said Terry Johnson, Owens Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice and Fire Science and Advisor of Lambda Epsilon Tau.
