The IRP covers the institution’s initiative to conduct and grant funding for research studies and to network with research-based institutions. Through the IRP, the institution commits itself to the growing research-based needs of the CALABARZON area. IRP has the following list of services:
- Institutional Research Grant Program (IRGP)
- Faculty Research Program (FRP)
- Faculty Development Activity (FDA) – Research
- Integrated Departmental Research (IDR)
- Institutional Research Colloquium

A program which provides financial assistance (maximum of Php 60,000) to scholarly endeavors of teaching and non-teaching personnel.
FRP is an overarching program enabling faculty to engage in research-related undertakings, while performing instruction and extension functions, as a means to enhance and sustain the Colegio’s research culture. A faculty researcher may be given a maximum of 16-unit equivalent teaching load including 4-unit FDA depending on the rigor of his/her research.
Faculty members are given an FDA load equivalency (maximum of 4 units) corresponding to the approved FDA rendered by a qualified full time faculty member in addition to his/her regular load assignment of 18 hours or units.
IDR is a research output collaboratively done by the RD with other departments/offices with specific research needs.
The Faculty Research Colloquium has been conducted for the past 11 years, to share the significant findings of both funded and non-funded research studies. Also, the RD is sending the faculty researchers to local and international research conferences to present the findings of their respective research studies.
The RD through the Institutional Research Unit (IRU) publishes two faculty research journals – NEXO and Journal of Institutional Research and Development (JIRD)
Scientific training in research is vital to produce quality research. RD designed RCBA to enhance the research skills and competencies of the faculty members.
The RD is mandated to evaluate instructional materials (IM) intended for the Colegio’s use. The review of IM aims to maintain certain standards and contribute to a need-based and up-to-date IM development.
