comment How to make the move to a research university from a liberal arts school?
I don't want to resurrect this question, but I should mention that my school seems to currently be experiencing some "buyer's remorse" about making a commitment to research. I have strong suspicions that within a year or so part of (1) in my above answer may be false due to economic factors. I fear that most liberal arts colleges won't be able to afford to support research, or will be unwilling to do so.
