Lambda Alpha Epsilon
Lambda Alpha Epsilon (LAE), the American Criminal Justice Association, is a national professional fraternity for criminal justice students. Mansfield University is one of 258 subordinate chapters nationwide. The chapter was established in the mid - 1970s and has continued to attract students of diverse backgrounds and interests. The organization is open to any student interested in the field of criminal justice.
The fraternity is actively involved in a number of service and professional activities, both on and off campus. For instance, LAE members have participated in multiple inmate mock career fairs at Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary along with crime scene investigation events for local Girl Scout troops. Members have volunteered to assist in local nursing homes and Toys for Tots to package Christmas presents for children, while they have also participated in the annual Bowling for Kids event, a signature fundraising event for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
