Embedded in the history of Journalism is the Society of Professional Journalists.  It is the nation's largest and most broad-based journalism organization, dedicated to encouraging the free practice of print and electronic journalism and stimulating high standards of ethical behavior.  The SPJ code of ethics is still the gold-standard by which industry professionals abide today. 

The Loyola Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists has won the Best Chapter in the Region award three times.
