It highlights the resources, environment, and institutional commitment needed in departments and schools of social work to help maintain and continue to expand the research culture and research capacity despite changes in faculty, leadership and funding streams. Factors to consider in hiring deans, senior faculty, research administrators are presented. Suggestions are provided for sustaining research productivity including hiring “research faculty”, role of post-docs, involving students on research teams, celebrating research gains, handling faculty resistance, and maintaining research funding.
