The introductory chapter frames the background, purpose and scope of this book. It initially examines research infrastructure, status and climate in social work education programs and then proposes strategies and suggests funding sources in which to build research capacity. Three composite scenarios are provided representing some of the common situations and challenges facing social work education programs and their faculty and staff; these scenarios then provide context for the information and technical resources provided in the chapters to follow.
