Challenges and Opportunities for Promoting Federally Funded Research in Social Work Programs

The Task Force on Administrative Research Infrastructures within Social Work Programs was appointed by the National Association of Deans and Directors (NADD) and sponsored by the Institute for the Advancement of Social Work Research (IASWR), with funding from the National Institute of Mental Health. Its purpose was to develop recommendations for administrative strategies and models in social work programs to support federally funded research productivity and quality research career development. This report identifies administrative supports and organizational arrangements that are currently being used to build research infrastructure and support research development within social work education programs nationally. These administrative approaches aim to assist social work faculty in securing external federal research funding and to support research careers.
