As a result of the ever-changing educational environment, the curriculum as part of the educational system must also change. These changes led to the development of the Outcomes-Based Curriculum resulting in a better quality of education for the learners. Thus, this study aims to know the cognition, experiences, attitudes, and challenges encountered by the faculty members in adopting Outcomes-Based Education (OBE) as the new curriculum approach. The study used qualitative methodology by selecting eight faculty members from the different colleges of the Mindanao State University-Main Campus. The findings show the challenges that the participants experienced when doing curriculum revision following the OBE, which includes availability of facilities and resources, time allotment, the alignment of the curriculum in formulating the objectives, and the skills and expertise of the faculty members. Nevertheless, despite these challenges, it resulted into the success of the revision and the implementation of the new OBE curriculum.
