Welcome to the eConsortium for University Centers and Researchers for Partnership with Justice Practitioners. The eConsortium was formed by George Mason University's Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy (CEBCP), in collaboration with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and other scholars from multiple universities to help facilitate partnership building between researchers and centers of accredited universities and criminal justice practitioners. This project is part of the Matrix Demonstration Project (PIs: Cynthia Lum and Christopher Koper), funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

The purpose of the CEBCP's eConsortium is to provide a resource to local, state, federal and other groups who seek to partner with researchers and centers of accredited universities* on mutually beneficial projects. Justice agencies and practitioners often seek assistance and scientific advice from university researchers about interventions, evaluations, and crime problems. In turn, researchers want to learn about the field, make their research more meaningful and realistic, and provide students with learning opportunities. Through this forum, we hope to strengthen and foster relationships between the academic research community and justice agencies, and to improve and increase the culture of evaluation and outreach by criminal justice practitioners, scholars and students.

Collaborations might include but are not limited to:

  • advice regarding crime, interventions, and evaluations
  • partnership on grant submissions for larger projects and evaluations
  • development of "locally initiated” or “Smart Policing/Courts/Corrections” partnerships and memoranda of understanding
  • exchange of data and research expertise
  • opportunities for graduate student dissertation and thesis research that benefits agency research needs
  • training and technical assistance
  • guest lectures and speakers
  • symposia, special events, etc.

* Please note: This service is free, but to be included in the eConsortium list, centers or experts must be an officially recognized unit or organization within an (713) 990-7736 or an equivalent status overseas.



The Tennessee Office of Criminal Justice Programs has released a Byrne JAG grant solicitation requesting applications for technical assistance and evaluation of a pretrial risk assessment process in up to two Tennessee jurisdictions. See 905-659-9150 for more details.
