— Teacher empowerment is still one of the most pressing global educational concerns despite teachers' efforts in upholding their worth in their chosen profession and maintaining the quality of education of the country. Education greatly impacts the development of nations as the world deals with globalization in the 21st century, but how can it be realized if its prime movers - the teachers - are disempowered? As a support to this argument, this descriptivecorrelational research determined the level of empowerment and work performance and their relationship of faculty members in Northwest Samar State University, Calbayog City, Philippines. We considered 131 faculty members using a researcher-made questionnaire. Weighted mean was used to measure the level of empowerment and work performance and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient was used to quantify the relationship between the two constructs. It was found out that faculty members were highly empowered and had a very satisfactory work performance. However, teacher empowerment did not pose significant influence on teaching performance. To conduct fora which may address direct participation of the faculty in expressing concerns about their financial and budgetary needs and among other recommendations were proposed based on the findings of the study.
