This workshop will help mid-career participants who hold or aspire to hold administrative positions regarding research. The workshop will aim to provide skills to secure and/or maintain an ADR position. Specifically, participants will (1) develop a clear picture about the day-to-day operation of the ADR Office, (2) understand expectations and skills needed for the position, (3) acquire skills to deal with challenges and develop strategies for maintaining a balance between academic administration and research productivity, and (4) identify steps for career development and transition. Benefits of holding an ADR position that accrue to the individual, school, and broader field of social work will also be discussed.
