The evolution of a research university can take many paths. Described here is a case study of the synergy between the establishment and growth of a primarily graduate school and the commitment to developing a research university, all with the assistance of a separately incorporated non-profit research administration entity. The result has been a dramatic advancement of the university as a nationally recognized research institution, benefiting from an emerging field and school focused on applied research and community engagement, and a research support entity that has likewise thrived in its mission. The strategies leading to this success highlight the role of research in institutional advancement and regional recognition, even when operating in the context of a primarily teaching oriented state educational system; the support of a strong research management apparatus was key to producing successful results.
