Research


How we do research in UC

Collegiate work is characterized not only by serious study in the particular discipline but also reliance on scientific inquiry in the pursuit of academic excellence. Faculty members and students engaged in this endeavor constantly seek to advance the frontiers of knowledge by experimentation, research and publication (Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation, 2012 Manual of Accreditation).

Research Vision, Mission, Goals and Core Values

In consonance with the Vision, Mission, Institutional Goals and Core Values of the University, the Research Office aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • To intensify the research capability of the faculty members and students.
  • To manage the conduct of institutional faculty researches.
  • To monitor the production of student researches.
  • To assist faculty members in the accomplishment of externally-funded research projects.
  • To conduct colloquia for the dissemination of research findings.
