Center for Academic Research and Educational Sustainability

Welcome to the Center for Academic Research and Educational Sustainability. We pride ourselves in guiding organizations and individuals and in diverse areas that promote growth and development in learning. An educational system must be wholesome, encapsulating technology, science, and art. Educational foundation must consist of the right curriculum elements. Otherwise, students will be shaky throughout their learning careers. Under such shaky conditions, you will find students who are afraid of Mathematics while Mathematics will remain the cornerstone of learning as long as life lasts. CARES will not shirk its responsibility to national educational systems that we serve in helping nations focus properly through grounding all students in not only Mathematics, but also in other fundamental learning curricula.




Some of the prominent areas of focus are:

Scholarly Research


Curriculum Development


Faculty Recruitment


Public/Community Health Projects




Academic Workshops


Faculty Development


Staff Development





Our Faculty Members are among the seasoned professionals in niche areas of global business sustainability.


Dr. Thomas Kwok

Dr. Thomas Kwok is an authority in Healthcare Administration. He conducted a groundbreaking research into employee attrition among mental health workers in Ontario, Canada. Findings from the study suggested that a stressful environment and poor management contributed a significant proportion of variance in turnover intention, revealing that higher stress and poorer management were related to higher turnover.  Pay and benefits also contributed to a significant proportion of variance, but in the opposite direction of the hypothesis, revealing that higher pay and benefits were related to higher turnover intention.  Demands at work, emotional exhaustion, and supervisor support were not significant contributors in this model.  Results of this study could serve as a basis for further research into employee turnover intention.  Implications for positive social change include strategies to improved job satisfaction by reducing stress and improving direct management skills which may lead to a decrease in employee turnover and an increase in employee morale and service quality.
