This purpose of the study is to examine perspectives of fulltime faculty at the School of Education in a major public research university on their socialization experiences to research. The institution offers several programs that socialize junior and senior faculty to many aspects of the faculty position, however, programs that are related to research were few. Twenty-nine fulltime faculty members from the institution's School of Education completed a survey providing insights on their perceptions regarding their research-related experiences during their graduate, early-career, and current stages. Faculty members were also asked to provide their perceptions on the institution's efforts towards their research socialization in addition to other descriptive data. Correlations between several types of research activities among faculty member's different career stages were significant. Perceptions concerning socialization to the faculty position were more positive regarding the contribution of faculty members' graduate experiences compared to the institutional efforts. Finally, perceptions regarding the available socialization programs at the institution were positive in general, and were also highly correlated with faculty members' perception about their overall experiences with the institution.
