Justice Society seeks out new board members

The Justice Society is seeking a new slate of board members for the upcoming school year, the organization announced at its meeting April 11.

All current members are terming out of their positions, which include president, vice president, treasurer, historian, secretary and social media coordinator.

Terms run from fall to spring of each school year, and students must be re-elected to the board each year.

“We focus on service, development and involvement,” said Martin Calderon, history junior and Justice Society president. “Joining us will not only bolster your resume but develop you into a competitive candidate when applying to your dream job.”

Calderon said he is passionate about the organization, but decided not to seek another term. He also serves as vice president-elect for the Student Government Association and said it would be too much for him to try to hold both positions next year.

Currently, the Justice Society is without a treasurer so Diana Miranda, a political science senior, stepped up at the April 11 meeting to fill the position.

“I like to attend these meetings for outreach and networking opportunities pertaining to criminal justice,” Miranda said.

Karl Mitchell, president of Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity, was also present at the April 11 meeting to discuss how the two organizations could partner in creating a membership event.

Much of the meeting was used for planning the social networking event April 25 in Esperanza Hall. The event will take the place of that week’s regular meeting. The organization is still working out details, but attendees can expect a movie, food and a raffle of Fiesta medals and other “Jag swag.”

Once details are secured and flyers are created, members will walk around campus promoting the event and answering questions from students.

The Justice Society also participates in community service activities. On May 4 the organization will be at the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center’s Paseo por el Westside event at the Rinconcito de Esperanza at 816 S. Colorado. Interested students should RSVP to Calderon at

Calderon said the Justice Society meets every two weeks at 2 p.m. Thursdays in Room 166 of the Science and Technology building to develop the public servants of tomorrow through community service, professional development and campus involvement.

Students interested in attending the next meeting should check the society’s JagSync page.
