Research at De La Salle University

Forward-looking research addresses the need for timely and appropriate knowledge and applications. It provides insights into critical issues, and positions all people and instruments needed in the proper perspective. It refines existing theories, techniques and equipment to address the need for expertise in providing solutions to the country’s developmental and educational concerns. Over time, research provides the leverage that transforms into intellectual leadership.

At De La Salle University, all colleges are encouraged to identify their own research objectives towards its goal of being a world-class institution. These are in line with the University's research priority areas: 1) women, children, and family; 2) food, nutrition, and health; 3) learners and learning innovations; 4) living culture and contemporary societies; and 5) sustainability, environment, and energy.

The University also coordinates activities and disseminates pertinent information to institutionally-based externally-funded research objectives. These research projects are awarded by organizations or institutions that provide funds to DLSU. In turn, the faculty is provided mechanisms that aid them in research activities.
