The American Polygraph Association (APA) and the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University established the APA Research Center at the university to encourage graduate students to conduct research in areas related to polygraph testing.
Established in 1966, APA is the world leader in the improvement of polygraph testing through professional education, advanced training, and progressive scientific research. Each year the APA provides a grant to the university's School of Criminal Justice to support the Center's activities. Funding supports overhead costs, clerical work, and a graduate assistantship of up to three- quarters time. Since its inception, the Center's research has provided the basis for published reports and presentations at APA and criminal justice conferences.
