The purpose of this study is to examine perspectives of fulltime faculty at the School ofEducation in a major public research university on their socialization experiences to research.The institution offers several programs that socialize junior and senior faculty to many aspects ofthe faculty position, however, programs that are related to research were few.Twenty-nine fulltime faculty members from the institution's School of Educationcompleted a survey providing insights on their perceptions regarding their research-relatedexperiences during their graduate, early-career, and current stages. Faculty members were alsoasked to provide their perceptions on the institution's efforts towards their research socializationin addition to other descriptive data.Correlations between several types of research activities among faculty member'sdifferent career stages were significant. Perceptions concerning socialization to the facultyposition were more positive regarding the contribution of faculty members' graduate experiencescompared to the institutional efforts.
