Abstract:

This study is anchored on the CHED’s mandate on the trilogy functions of higher education: instruction, research, and extension. Research is an important competent in quality assurance and therefore should not be taken for granted. The study attempted to find factors that relate with faculty’s participation, dissemination, and utilization of research in the three campuses of Quirino State University. The descriptive research design was used. Data were gathered with the use of a structured questionnaire matched with informal interviews. The statistical tools used in the analysis of data were frequencies, percentages, means, and Spearman’s Rho correlation analysis. Results reveal that the average faculty teaching load for the past three years was 21-24 units; majority did not receive organizational support; few researches were done due to lack of deloading schemes, no extra honorarium pay over above the teaching load; and lack of travel and allowances for faculty researches, as well as many subject preparations and designations. There is a positive correlation between educational attainment, number of research conducted, organizational support and research involvement, dissemination, and utilization.
