Bannering the core values of Leadership and Excellence in Research, a contingent front Philippine College of Criminology (PCCR) recently brought fame and recognition to the school with their achievements in the Urdaneta City University International Research Conference 2022. Co-convened by The New College of Chennai India, the University of Technology and Applied Sciences at Shinas, Oman, and the Chetan Business School in Hubli, India, the event also featured presenters from China, India, and Dubai.

It was an exhilarating experience for the PCCR contingent as they were able to engage with the other researchers, foreign and Filipino, at the conference. They encountered new research methodologies and were introduced to cutting-edge statistical techniques.
Completing The PCCR contingent to the conference were :
- Arman R. Bibiolata, Jr., Novilla Cruz, Karl Lenin Olegario, and Jasper Jamil B. dela Cruz, “Toward Criminological Laboratory Innovations: Learning from the Students Online Lived Experiences in Forensic Chemistry and Toxicology.”
