Research offices come in many configurations (centralized or distributed) and with a variety of staffing combinations, but regardless of the model, all are challenged with engaging faculty to support and, in some case, grow the research enterprise of the institution.

Research administrators are often equipped with a variety of tools and information sources along with their own wealth of knowledge; however, these assets are not always enough to engage faculty.

In this ProQuest article, read about various ways that the research managers interact with their faculty to enhance the research development process.

This useful guide offers solid advice for those tasked with the challenge of motivating faculty to find funding, or those who need to further streamline the work they are doing to promote the research development office’s tools and services. Drawing from a variety of research offices who participated in a survey, the experience of some of the professionals we work with offers valuable ideas surrounding faculty engagement, while encouraging a realistic approach to application.
