Research Seminar Series

The Research Seminar Series is a lecture-based program designed to give faculty members a forum for academic exchange. With the end goal of enhancing the scholarly atmosphere in the departments through the continuing professional development of all faculty, the program invites speakers to discuss topics in areas of particular relevance to faculty development and provides a venue for selected faculty to share their insights from research-related trainings to the academic community. By serving this training function, the Research Seminar Series meets the need to foster a sense of community and collegiality among all faculty.

Central to the importance that De La Salle Araneta University places on fostering a thriving and vibrant research culture is its commitment to create opportunities to further develop its faculty’s research competencies and capabilities. Through the provision of financial support and proper venue, the university seeks to inspire current and prospective faculty to publish socially-relevant and empirically-based research that resonate, not only with the academic community, but to the general public as well.
