Making Significant Contributions
As a university, the Ateneo de Manila University is strongly committed to conducting research in line with its strategic thrusts of mission and identity, nation-building, and environment and development. Its contribution to the advancement of human knowledge through innovation, inquiry, and insight is purposive to the current challenges and demands of the Philippine economy, culture, and society, set in an emerging and transforming global context.
Our researchers distinguish themselves with numerous publications in local and international journals and book publications, garnering critical recognition from local and international institutions and award-giving bodies.
HIGH IMPACT PROJECTS
Faculty members, visiting professors, post-doctoral fellows, postgraduate and undergraduate students are involved in various scholarly work.
Their research receives funding and support from local and international institutions such as the Department of Science and Technology, Commission of Higher Education, Department of Health, United States Agency for International Development, Erasmus Mundus, and the World Bank.
The Loyola Schools continue to pursue an orientation toward interdisciplinarity in view of the growing complexity of present-day challenges, such as the multiplicity of information and knowledge, and the interlocking of systems in human and natural processes.
DISCIPLINE-BASED SERVICE LEARNING
The Loyola Schools’ Integrated Ateneo Formation (InAF) program is aligned with the University’s mission to form persons-for-others who will contribute effectively to the transformation of Philippine society as servant-leaders engaged in various fields of endeavor.
In its formation activities, the InAF program seeks to develop Ateneans who can harness their academic competence and training in the service of nation-building even as they act on their responsibilities as global citizens. This program aims to form Ateneans who are guided by Ignatian discernment and nurtured by a personal relationship with God, strongly oriented towards faith and justice, and rooted in their culture.
