History

The Research Development Office (RDO) was created in June 1979 when LCC Manila was preparing for the first PAASCU accreditation visit. It served as the PAASCU accrediting Team-Secretariat and exhibit headquarters.

During the Administrators Evaluation Meeting (AEM) in April 1981, the proposal of evaluating the RDO (OSA Educational) System's unit was considered and approved by the Congregation's school administrators. Without the formality of a written documentation for the said approval, RDC was transformed into OSA-RDC.

In 1999, Sr. Imelda Mora, OSA, realigned the mission of the OSA-RDO. At present, the Research and Publications Center (RES) gears up to play an active role in LCCM's pursuit of academic excellence and extension services.
