Moreover, this interactive session is designed so that deans and directors, faculty, doctoral students, and others fostering research initiatives within social work education programs may explore new directions for building their research plans. It will include a discussion of specific strategies for building research infrastructure and capacity, stimulating funding support for social work research, as well as administrative challenges in grant submission and the implementation process.
