Research guidelines are formulated to enhance the culture of research at De La Salle Lipa. It is the responsibility of the Office of Research and Publications to promote and deliver support services to ensure that high-quality scientific papers are produced, and good research practice is shared by the whole community. These guidelines, through the office of the Vice-Chancellor for Research, shall be modified and updated whenever necessary after due consultations with the representatives of all units.
Research is an essential component of the functions of De La Salle Lipa as a learning institution and a strategy for realizing the mission to create social impact through social innovation. Partner’s engagement in research broadens knowledge and contribute to the effectiveness of academic programs through the development of new teaching and learning methodologies. It is also a way for the institution to contribute to society by creating innovative solutions to solve real-world problems through research.
