The Penn State Criminal Justice Research Center (CJRC) is housed within the College of the Liberal Arts and was established in 2009. The CJRC Advisory Board was reconstituted in 2017 and features 13 members consisting of agency research representatives, alumni representatives, and external and internal academic administrators.

The board meets once a year to provide feedback for Center strategic planning, communicate CJRC initiatives and research to outside stakeholders, strengthen existing collaborations, provide access for future research, data sharing, and funding opportunities, assistance in project proposal evaluations, and widen CJRC impact.
