The vital role of research in expanding the frontiers of knowledge renders every person in the academe to be dynamically participative in undertaking this academic exercise. The Commission on Higher Education in the Philippines reaffirmed the fact that the primary role of colleges and universities in the country is to generate and disseminate knowledge. In this premise, the responsibility and function to undergo research and related scholarly investigations in various disciplines should not be relegated to the back seat. In responding appropriately to the expectation of the Philippine Commission on Higher Education, one Philippine State University took efforts in surveying the research attitudes of their teaching personnel, so that it could ascertain the current state of faculty members’ skills, capabilities, and competencies in assuming research activities. This undertaking established clearly the research attitudes of the identified personnel; hence, provide the university managers and administrators with significant records to make informed decision on which research domains need development and which ones are to be sustained to achieve excellence in research practice. The survey included all tenured teaching personnel across campuses.
