The UST Angelicum College Research and Development Office (RDO), which is a part of the Academic Affairs Division, was created to pursue the institution’s academic and organizational development through research. Specifically, the RDO, in cooperation with its in-house linkages, shall be responsible for the development and administration of UST Angelicum College’s research schemas – from the planning, organizing, and implementation, and utilization of research outputs.

 

RDO Vision

The RDO envisions itself as a catalyst-facilitator of quality and practical research activities and outputs that advance the institution’s alternative system of education, encourage Christian values formation, as well as promote social and environmental awareness and responsiveness.

 

RDO Mission

The RDO is committed to initiate and facilitate institutional research endeavors and equip members of the UST Angelicum College academic community to carry out collaborative and multidisciplinary researches that seek to advance the alternative-non-graded and learner-centered educational system of the institution.

 

RDO Goals

To fulfill its mission and realize its vision, the RDO aims to:

1.     Engage in research initiatives towards the development of the College into a leading institution with an alternative educational system;

2.     Promote research awareness and a culture of scholarly inquiry in all categories of the professional community in response to the academic and organizational needs of the College;

3.     Develop the research capability of the faculty members as well as the school’s capacity for research as an academic institution;

4.     Ensure the quality of the research process and outputs through the creation and execution of policies and guidelines for the documentation of all significant phases of a research-from the proposal stage to the terminal report and manuscript for publication;

5.     Initiate relevant academic activities and forums that support interest and competency in research; and

6.     Assist stakeholders of academic and institutional research in the implementation, publication, and utilization of research output.

Bautista, OP, PhD, the Chief Operating Officer of UST Angelicum College, indicating complete name, year level, degree, college/university currently attending, title of the study, what will be conducted in the school (survey, interview, observation, etc.), who will be involved, how many participants will be needed, and how much time will be consumed in conducting the survey/interview/observation.

  • Attach a copy of the survey/interview questions/observation sheet.
  • Indicate contact information such as phone numbers or e-mail address in the letter.
  • Leave the hard copy of the letter and attachments to the guard at the gate (for researchers from other schools).
  • Call 732-4243 loc.136 after 1-2 days to follow up on the approval of the request.
