Reframing Research Administration
Cole, Sharon Stewart
Journal of Research Administration, v41 n1 p11-21 Spr 2010
The purpose of this paper is to inform administrators and organizational leaders that a change in the support offered to faculty and the environment of research administration is desirable. This recommendation is supported by the results of a Delphi study that was undertaken to gather expert opinions and recommendations from research faculty and research administrators who were asked to respond to focus group-type questions based upon their experiences. Surprisingly, faculty participated at a remarkably high level and offered many constructive suggestions for improvement while research administrations participated at a lower rate but offered valuable recommendations. This paper compares the views received and discusses methods for reframing or restructuring research administration. (Contains 3 figures.)
