Funding Research

Research is one of the cornerstones of the program at the College of Criminal Justice, with a focus on bringing research into practice in the field. Using evidence-based practices, we help agencies develop programs and initiatives to improve criminal justice systems not only in Texas but throughout the country and world.

Through our partnership with federal, state and local agencies, as well as private foundations, the College is making a difference in the study of crime and justice and coming up with proven solutions for success. Our studies are regularly published in peer-reviewed journals and used to develop model programs to address key issues.

Our research is made possible through grants and donations from a wide variety of sources, including national agencies, state departments. and local entities. Among some of our recent initiatives are:
