  • STI WNU RESEARCH PRIORITIES

    The STI West Negros University (STI WNU) Research Agenda was formulated to support and promote the research needs of the school, industries, community, and the country. It was revised in June 2010 to align its priorities with the National Higher Education Research Agenda (NHERA), Regional Research Agenda, and Department of Science and Technology and to make it more responsive to both local and national needs. The Research Agenda was further reviewed on June 2014 giving consideration to National Higher Education Research Agenda-2 (NHERA-2).

    NHERA-2 restates the general policies that should guide higher education research, presents strategies and initiatives to develop research capacity, enhance research productivity in higher education institutions, and identify priority areas for research and research-related programs in the next ten years. It is a product of a series of roundtable discussions on the changing conditions of higher education in the country and the state of research in Philippine colleges and universities. It incorporates the best thinking of national experts including institutional leaders, senior researchers and representatives from organizations that fund research.

    The Agenda is directed at three primary audiences, each playing a vital role in shaping Philippine higher education – state policy makers, institutional leaders, and researchers. It is designed to help them consider what types of research would contribute most in national development and to the advancement of the disciplines.
