It utilized the descriptive research design and used purposive sampling to get the majority of the respondents. A survey questionnaire was used to obtain data from the respondents who were available during the conduct of the study. Findings of the study revealed that majority of the respondents got only satisfactory level of participation and performance in research and extension while most of them strongly agree on the statements on intrinsic and extrinsic motivations. Lack of time came out the number one problem encountered by the respondents in conducting research and extension programs, projects and activities. Also, majority of the respondents identified proper time from among the suggested solutions on problems encountered in the conduct of university’s research and extension program, projects and activities.
