Abstract: In an era of remarkable speed and dynamism in the knowledge-driven global economy, Philippine higher education is positioned as a major driver of economic competitiveness. Hence, this descriptive-survey study describes the level of engagement of State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) leaders in Panay Island as to research and extension. The respondents of the study were the one hundred ninety-six from a total population of three hundred eighty-four (384) State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) leaders in Panay Island. As to the research instrument, this study used a validated and reliability-tested researcher-made survey questionnaire. Mean as the statistical tool was used to describe the SUC leaders’ levels of engagement in the areas of research and extension. Findings revealed that State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) leaders are engaged in extension and moderately engaged in research. Therefore, the Commission on Higher Education left caveats of concern in research and had gaps to fill to improve levels of engagement in extension. Since these two mandates are necessary for valuing quality education delivery commitments.
