The study aimed to establish baseline information on the influence of research capability and culture on the passion for research; whether or not such influence is significant. It utilized quantitative method via descriptive correlational and analytical designs with the use of statistical tools such as Weighted Mean, Pearson r and Multiple Linear Regressions. The study reports the following: the overall level of the respondents’ research capability is average; the overall level of the respondents’ research culture is average; the overall level of the respondents’ passion for research is high; the respondents’ research capability significantly related to their passion for research; there is a significant relationship between the respondents’ research culture and their passion for research; the respondents’ capability and culture on research are significant factors to their passion for research (F=19.40; p<0.05). Hence, the study inferred that any change on the level of the respondents’ research capability and culture has a corresponding effect on the level of their passion for research. Furthermore, the combined influence of 37.40% implies that 62.60% are influenced by other factors not covered in this study.
