Alvin V. Nuqui | Reynaldo C. Cruz



This study assessed the determinants of faculty research productivity in Augustinian higher education institutions (HEIs) in Luzon. Findings of the study suggest that there is still a need for Augustinian HEIs in Luzon to further advance the faculty members’ educational experiences and background in research particularly in giving exposures to current professional literature and in the dissemination of research findings. Majority of the higher education faculty of Augustinian higher education institutions has recognized the value of scholarship as shown by their interest in doing research and taking small steps in attaining real work of research scholar. The findings of the study indicate that there is so much that can be desired in terms of improving the research productivity of the faculty members of Augustinian schools. Faculty research productivity in Augustinian HEIs in Luzon is significantly influenced by the extent of research promotion of institutions in terms of promotion of the research environment and providing mentors’ assistance. Just like any other Philippine HEIs, Augustinian schools haggle similar problems and issues on research productivity such as budget availability, institutional support mechanism and others.
