RESEARCH AREAS (ACHIEVE)

ACHIEVEMENT-RELATED (ACADEMIC, CHARACTER/VALUES, SPORTS, ARTS, LEADERSHIP, ATHLETICS)

The educational curriculum of Southville International School and Colleges aspires to develop all the students to become achievers. Thus, the curriculum is anchored on Vision stating that SISC is committed to developing leaders who will make a difference in the 21st century and the framework of the 5 Cs which aims to equip the students with Competence, Character, Collaboration, Commitment to achieve, and Creativity). Likewise, the curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop their skills, competence and talents to the optimum through its MALACA (Tan, 1990) Program that recognizes the multiple intelligences of the students. MALACA stands for:

Mental Acuity
Academics
Leadership
Arts
Creativity
Athletics

It is encouraged that employees conduct achievement-related researches to assess the programs in terms of their effectiveness or ineffectiveness and the corresponding reasons or factors.
Education-related achievements would include topics on teaching strategies, educational innovations, administrative operations initiatives, Character Building Programs and other related topics.

COMMUNITY EXTENSION/SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY; ECOSYSTEM AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
As an integral part of the educational system, community extension service that encompasses topics on social responsibility, ecosystem and environmental responsibility is one of the major research advocacies.
Research topics that are encouraged in this advocacy are the effects of the SISC Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) endeavors, the outreach program initiatives of the various departments in the adopted barangay such as the Health and Sanitation projects, the save a Poor Urban Child (PoUCh) Program, the Socio-cultural enhancement projects, Economic and Livelihood, Educational endeavors such as tutorials for 4th year high school students so they could pass the Scholarship Programs in the university, and Enhancement of family relationships. Another project that can be researched on is SISC’s Adopt-a-School Program that made SISC the first educational institution to receive an award from the Department of Education (DepEd) in 2008.

HEALTH, POPULATION AND HUMAN WELL-BEING
This is a research topic that may have some overlap with the COMMUNITY EXTENSION/SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY advocacy. However, there can be other topics related to this advocacy specifically on a wider scale. This can also be based on the government’s goal since health, population and human well-being are always a hot issue.

INTERNATIONAL AND CURRENT TRENDS IN EDUCATION AND OTHER RELATED FIELDS (Technology-driven education, Understanding by Design (UBD) ETC.)

Topics related to this advocacy could vary from educational philosophies to teaching methodologies. Research projects can be on evaluation of the effectiveness or the effects of the philosophies or methodologies to the learning of students. The faculty may also engage in innovative endeavors such as using the Understanding by Design or the use of e-learning classrooms.

ECONOMIC/ENTREPRENEURIAL/INVESTMENT/STOCKS/BUSINESS-RELATED

Since SISC is the pioneering educational institution in practicing on-campus on-line stock trading, the advocacy of SISC leans toward the effect of the Capital Market Learning Center (CMLC) in encouraging students to invest. It is also encouraged that the faculty or the management conduct a research evaluation on the effects of the Capital Market Institute of the Philippines (CMIP) program in accrediting college and high school faculty who teach Investment. The program is an annual endeavor in which faculty members in colleges and universities all over the country who wish to be an accredited Investment Instructor attend a one-week live-in seminar-workshop through the Investment Teaching Accreditation Program (ITAP) before they are given accreditation exams. The ITAP screens the nominated instructors and the Committee on Scholarship accepts only a maximum of 30 participants per run.
Other research topics may deal on the small scale business enterprises in the barangays, and some innovative business operations that the employees think can be of help in enhancing one’s economic condition and may redound to the country’s economy. For those who want to do a large-scale research, they may opt to do research about the government’s economic policies and programs.

Employees may also want to research on the effectiveness of the government agencies in appropriating and using their funds. 

VIABILITY OF PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS

Topics on this advocacy are usually the impact or evaluation of the viability of the educational and operational programs and projects of the school.
