Key Strategies for Building Research Capacity of University Faculty Members
Huenneke, Laura F.; Stearns, Diane M.; Martinez, Jesse D.; Laurila, Kelly
Innovative Higher Education, v42 n5-6 p421-435 Dec 2017
Universities are under pressure to increase external research funding, and some federal agencies offer programs to expand research capacity in certain kinds of institutions. However, conflicts within faculty roles and other aspects of university operations influence the effectiveness of particular strategies for increasing research activity. We review conventional approaches to increasing research, focusing on outcomes for individual faculty members and use one federally-funded effort to build cancer-related research capacity at a public university as an example to explore the impact of various strategies on research outcomes. We close with hypotheses that should be tested in future formal studies.
