UCU participates in CHED-CAR project

To further fostering a strengthened research culture in the academe, Urdaneta City University participated in the 2023 KABADANG P.R.O.M.I.S.E (Publication Refinement & Optimization for Maximum International Scientific Excellence) Project of Commission on Higher Education – Cordillera Administrative Region, at Saint Louis University, Baguio City on September 4-8, 2023.




Dr. Noel L. Guevara, the Director of Center for Research and Development, Dr. Sonny Soriano, the Director of External Affairs and Linkages, Dr. Ryan Jayson V. Delos Reyes, the Dean of the College of Teacher Education, Dr. Arnel B. Ocay, a faculty member of the College of Information and Technology Education, and Prof. Rudolf M. Tan, Overall OJT Coordinator, served as delegates in the five-day conference.




The project aims to promote development,  advancement, and recognition of Higher Education Institutions through research publications, responding to the mandate of the Commission on Higher Education to produce not only quality educators but also quality researchers.


Topics that focused on Ethics in Research Publication, Strengthening Research Literature and Related Studies, Practical Angle Writing in Academic Publications, and The Role of Artificial Intelligence were discussed by distinguished KABADANG mentors from all over the region, emphasizing the value and impact of research when it reaches a wider audience, and ultimately benefiting both the academic community and the society.




According to CHED-CAR, “Kabadang” is a localized Cordilleran term meaning, “a mentor,” which was coined to “represent a partnership in mentoring the instructors, teachers, and staff members of Higher Education Institutions in the area of research publication,” or in other words, the core of the endeavor is “mentoring the mentors.” 


KABADANG P.R.O.M.I.S.E 2023 believed that enriching and capacitating educator-researchers in the field of research can have a ripple effect on the kind of education the nation needs today.
