Eta Chapter

University of Nebraska-Lincoln and University of Nebraska Omaha
National Criminal Justice Honorary Society

Eta is the name of the University of Nebraska at Omaha and University of Nebraska-Lincoln chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma.  The chapter was formed in 1971 at UNO.  A second chapter, Chi Epsilon, was formed at UNL in 1993, but at this time both UNO and UNL Criminology and Criminal Justice students are served by the Eta chapter.  The society recognizes scholastic excellence by undergraduate and graduate students in the criminal justice sciences.
