In line with its goal of becoming a leading learner-centered research university, De La Salle University has, since 2008, established an ethical review mechanism guided by the DLSU Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research. Ethics review procedures were implemented, and checklists for different research categories were used. College Research Ethics Committees (RECs) were constituted to conduct the ethical review of faculty researches. Since 2011, expedited and full ethics reviews were carried out for research proposals of faculty members.

To realize the responsibility of the University to ensure the quality and integrity of research undertaken by its faculty and students, the De La Salle University Research Ethics Office (DLSU-REO) has the mandate to ensure that proper research ethics governance is in place in the University.

The DLSU-REO is tasked to develop, implement and evaluate policy and procedures related to the research governance in De La Salle University. The DLSU-REO operates under the Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation.
