The University Research Office kicked off the month with a two-day seminar last February 8–9, 2023, at the TSU Hotel, Lucinda Campus, as part of its commitment to produce high caliber researchers in Tarlac State University. The URO’s pre-Valentine’s special event revolved around the theme "𝐇𝐎𝐖 𝐓𝐎 𝐏𝐑𝐎𝐏𝐎𝐒𝐄? 𝐀 𝐒𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐫-𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐩 𝐨𝐧 𝐖𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐜𝐡 𝐏𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧" led by its director, Dr. Robert V. Marcos.
staff members from teaching and non-teaching units from different colleges heeded the call to join as three eminent speakers—Dr. Arnold E. Velasco, President of TSU; Dr. Wilmark J. Ramos, Director of TDTCO; and Dr. Robert V. Marcos, Director of URO—blessed the event. The sessions highlighted certain topics that are related and important to building research, including the 2-Step Ideation Process and characteristics of a research. The participants' presentations of their research proposals, applying what they had learnt from the topics discussed, marked the seminar's conclusion.
To further their objective of establishing a research environment with critical and analytical researchers, URO makes sure that seminar-workshops like this can be anticipated in the future.
