Research administrative supports must parallel and reinforce faculty initiatives in research grant procurement. This article features several types of developments that draw on presentations at the National Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work meetings. Key changes in social work programs are addressed, including the growing research portfolio, the growing number of centers and institutes, and National Institutes of Health funding. Mission-driven strategies are seen as essential to building effective research cultures and diverse research funding. Key developmental steps in building more robust research climates and cultures are cited in brief case scenarios. The article describes several features of research infrastructures and administrative supports that range from associate dean for research to research administrators.
