Honor societies are an excellent way to encourage students to enjoy a broader co-curricular experience.
Honor societies also offer students a way to have their academic effort recognized and shared throughout the academic community. Thus, VFMC recognizes the following Honor Societies:
Phi Theta Kappa’s mission is two-fold:
- recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students

- Improve criminal justice through educational activities.
- Foster professionalism in law enforcement personnel and agencies.
- Promote professional, academic, and public awareness of criminal justice issues.
- Encourage the establishment and expansion of higher education and professional training in criminal justice.
- Provide a unified voice for professionals in, and students of, criminal justice.
- Promote high standards of ethical conduct, professional training, and higher education within the criminal justice field. The VFMC Chapter is Psi Mu Chi.
