With globalization, it is necessary for the Philippines to unrelentingly pursue and produce knowledge-intensive goods and services as the key to economic development and poverty reduction. Basic to the realization of this potential is knowledge, which can be gained through a well-educated, technically-skilled manpower. This paper sums up the research process of the University of Eastern Philippines (UEP) which has the potency to contribute well to economic progress. In particular, it attempts to i) provide a perspective on how research is done in the state universities and colleges (SUCs) with particular focus on the university as it relates to SUC leveling, normative funding, and performance-based bonus, ii) discuss the research processes, and iii) identify the elements of research dissemination and utilization.
