Psychological researchers at small colleges face a number of problems associated with conducting research. Too often small colleges lack the infrastructure, resources, and especially the availability of time to complete meaningful research projects. This workshop will address the importance of pushing beyond these problems to actually conduct good research and will offer suggestions for to how to do it. We will discuss strategies for dealing with academic administrators, streamlining research activities, involving undergraduate students as active collaborators in programmatic research, and being in several places at once. We also will discuss the critical value of networking with other faculty at research universities.
