Chapter three presents a “ readiness to change” framework that administrators, faculty, interested students and community partners may use to assess a department or school’s current research climate, culture, capacity, resources and motivation, and its readiness to promote a research climate and culture in order for faculty and students to become productive researchers. The framework can be used to help schools assess where their department or school of social work is, as compared to others, on a continuum of research climate and culture, intensity, and readiness to implement research. The authors report findings from surveys and interviews with faculty and staff throughout the country to assess their research capacity and they provide examples of models of infrastructure development in schools and departments of social work and action steps that can be taken from either an institutional or faculty perspective.

Keywords:   research capacity, motivation and readiness to change, PhD vs Non-Phd, institutional commitment, mentors
