About University Research Center

The University Research Center (URC) of Central Philippine University (CPU) is the official arm of the University to carry out the second function of the University being a Higher Education Institution (HEI) –that is Research. CPU desires an interdependent approach of the three functions of Higher Education Institutions – Instruction, Research and Extension – and to make these programs responsive to the social, cultural, economic, and developmental needs of the country at local, regional and national levels.

The establishment of the University Research and Outreach Center (UROC) in 1998 has made a breakthrough and provided an impetus in consolidating the research activities of the different colleges and in coming up with a University Research Guidelines and Research Agenda. The move of the University to separate the Outreach Center from the Research Center in 2002 strengthened the consolidation process.
