In the morning of March 17, 2010 at the New NCC Auditorium, the Center for Research and Development Studies (CRADS) of Northern Christian College spearheaded a two-pronged event – the 2nd Annual Research Forum and the Research Capability Building (RCB) In-House Lecture Series Culminating Activity.

Cognizant of the crucial part of dissemination in the research and development (R&D) continuum, a total of 17 research studies from various disciplines were disseminated through oral and poster presentations in the research forum. Of the 17, six were master’s theses of college faculty members who were recipients of the CHED faculty development program; three master’s theses from NCC Graduate School students; two papers from CRADS staff; five papers from the undergraduate students of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Social Work (CASSW) and College of Business Education (CBE) and one institutionalized research from Dr. Virginia V. Duldulao, main proponent, the CASSW faculty and CRADS staff.

The forum was divided into Poster Session and Oral Presentation of Papers. Dr. Emmanuel V. Asuncion, CRADS Research Associate, formally opened the forum with the rationale of the activity, followed by the inspirational message of the president, Dr. Caesar I. Agnir. Thirty-minute poster presentations of ten (10) research studies followed shortly. In the poster session, the participants were invited to view the posters with the researchers beside their posters ready to answer queries from the viewers. Prof. Nelson S. Lacadin, College of Theology faculty member, CRADS staff member, and assistant to the dean of the Graduate School served as the moderator for the oral presentations. After the paper presentations, Dr. Norma L. Fernando, NCC Graduate School and CTE faculty member, gave her impressions, while Dr. Virginia V. Duldulao, dean for Academic Affairs and Director for Research and Community Extension and Development, and one of the oral presenters, delivered the closing remarks.

Dr. Marilou P. Lucas, Director, CHED Regional Research Center for Region 1 and CAR, was the main guest of the event. In her inspiring message, she commended NCC through the leadership of Pres. Agnir for being active in building research consciousness among its faculty and students. She likewise encouraged NCC faculty to submit their research proposal to the CHED ZRC for funding.

The culminating activity of the faculty RCB lecture series subsequently concluded the event. Dr. Asuncion awarded the certificates of attendance for the college faculty-trainees and certificates of appreciation for the resource speakers. The Research Capability Building lecture series started in July 2007 but was discontinued. Since its re-launching by the CRADS in July 2010, the lecture series harvested four research proposals ready for submission to the Research Council for evaluation. The lecture series concluded in March 2011.

Drs. Duldulao and Lucas assisted Dr. Asuncion in the awarding ceremony. The certificates for the oral and poster presenters were also given. # Roxane Balneg. Uploaded by Nelson Lacadin and Gregg Bonoan.
