Regina E. Gloria Ph.D
Professor, Laguna State Polytechnic University
This study sought to determine the research orientation and professorial performance of LSPU SCC faculty in the nine (5) Colleges and considered the result as the basis of developing an acceptable intervention work plan for them. In particular, it described the demographic profile of the respondents, their research orientation, and research performance. It also ascertained the difference in the research orientation and performance of the respondents based on their profile and by colleges. Using the mixed method of research, a checklist survey questionnaire, and structured interview, data were gathered from the 59 professors. Percentage, weighted mean, multiple regression, and ANOVA were also used to analyze the statistical data gathered in the study. It was revealed that the LSPU- SCC professors have very high levels of awareness on the research agenda, self-motivation, research capabilities, and methodological skills and have high levels of community engagement and fund generation. Further, there is a significant difference in the research awareness, research capabilities, and community engagement of the LSPU-SCC professors; but there is no significant difference in their self-motivation and methodological skills. Only a few of the professors have published in refereed or non-refereed journals, presented papers in different levels, have research copyright, research utilized, and awards received. Thus, an intervention work plan was developed and evaluated as highly acceptable in all its parameter. The LSPU â€“ SCC professors, being aware of the research agenda are motivated to do research using a very high level of methodological skills and research capabilities, and community partnership.
