ONELETRAN RESEARCH CENTER MANAGEMENT PRACTICES AND THEIR INFLUENCE ON FACULTY’S RESEARCH CAPABILITY AND PRODUCTIVITY
The current ineffectuality of most higher education institutions in the Philippines necessitated the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to be in full swing by postulating research procedures and strategies that direct HEI to efficiently work towards their research capability and production. The HEIs in the country have positively act in response by creating a visible and functioning research center. On this note, research became evidently one of the pillars of higher education. Considering these literatures, the study focused on four variables of research center management practices and aims to examine the statistical associations between the management practices of research center and the research capability and productivity of ONELETRAN faculty. The null hypothesis that research center management practices do not influence faculty’s research productivity has been accepted. However, the null hypothesis that research center management practices do not influence faculty’s research competence has been rejected. The findings of the study emphasized the major responsibility of the Colegio through its research centers to elevate faculty’s competence by way of improving its management practices.
