SPSBL Research Center: In Focus
August was an eventful month for the SPSBL Research Center, Three research proposals were presented before the Research Council: Dr. Amadeo P. Cristobal, Jr, “Feelings, Needs, Challenges and Adjustments of Newly-Hired Accountants as Instructors: Towards Successful Transitions”; Prof. Susana Balingasa, “Causes and Prevention of Drug Addiction in Schools: Basis for the Formulation of Drug Addiction Prevention Program”; and Prof. Josefina Apostol and Prof. Germill Mesia, “An Evaluation of Enrollment Strategies, SY 2011-2015.”
Dr. Cristobal’s study looks into the status of new instructors under the Accounting Department; and how their engagement in the classrooms, the department, and the institution might be improved. Dr. Cristobal is AVP for Academic and Research Affairs. Early this year, his research was published in an international journal for education.
The proposal of Prof. Balingasa of the Business Department is a scrutiny on the drug education concerns in campus. This aims to identify causes of the problem and provide concrete solutions and actions.
Prof. Apostol and Prof. Mesia’s study is aimed at improving the efficiency of enrollment services in Saint Paul School of Business and Law. Apostol is the school registrar, while Mesia is Vice-Dean of the School of Business and Accountancy.
These proposals were accepted by the members of the panel, an indication of SPSBL’s high regard for research excellence. It can be recalled that the center has produced three researches this year. The first ever research Olympics saw some 19 student research groups and a faculty presented before a panel that was organic to SPSBL. Over 40 researches joined in the competition where cash prizes and certificates were awarded.
