Determining the factors of research culture that explain the research productivity of faculty in a state university is the main goal of this paper. Research productivity was gauged using the number of completed researches and published research outputs in refereed journals. Purposive sampling was employed to obtain the 57 participants of the study. A valid and reliable survey instrument was used to gather the data. Mean and Stepwise Multiple Regression were used to arrive these findings. The faculty members were of the opinion that they have mastery in conducting research. The environmental and institutional aspects of research culture that promote research productivity exist but were less practiced. Faculty research productivity needs improvement particularly on the number of published research outputs in refereed journals. The regression analysis revealed that research culture composed of personal, environmental, and institutional factors explained 8.1% of the variance in the faculty research productivity. However, it was only the institutional factors that was found as significant (<.05) predictor of the faculty research productivity. Knowledge of the research performance of the faculty will enable faculty members and administrators to know where they stand in research collectively. The findings can be translated into practical use to address faculty research productivity.
