The study determined the level of gender sensitization among the faculty members of Southern Luzon State University as to background characteristics, delivery of the subject matter, organization of the learning experience, design of didactic strategies and selection of the learning evaluation. The researcher utilized the descriptive survey questionnaire among the 267 faculty members-respondents from main campus, satellite and extension campuses. Frequency and percentage, weighted arithmetic mean, t-test and ANOVA were used as statistical tools. Hence, it was revealed that majority of the respondents are aged 46 to 50, female, straight, teaching between 6-10 years, regular or permanent and from the main campus in Lucban, Quezon. The level of gender sensitization among the respondents in terms of delivery of the subject matter, organization of the learning experience, design of didactic strategies and selection of learning evaluation demonstrated strong agreement proving that they are highly gender sensitized. There is a significant difference in the gender sensitization as to the delivery of subject matter, design of didactic strategies and selection of learning evaluation when respondents are grouped according to background characteristics. Meanwhile, sex and number of years teaching in SLSU for organization of learning experience has no significant difference. Problems encountered were issue on equal rights, issue on classroom management and instruction, issue on personal reservation, issue on suitability of instructional materials, issue on gender and development facilities and issue on gender sensitization awareness. The researcher hereby recommended an enhancement program to properly address those problems encountered that should be given appropriate action.
