With the rapid growth of the technological environment and the current COVID-19 epidemic, the way we interact and conduct business has undergone significant changes. Graduate education institutions are not exempted from these changes, as administrators and faculty are under pressure to research and implement new learning approaches in order to ensure the continuation of service delivery. With this in mind, there is a need to build and strengthen faculty capacities in technology use. Given this, the study was undertaken to determine the technology adoption of the graduate school faculty of St. Paul University Quezon City utilizing its Learning Management Systems. By using the Technology Acceptance Model as its framework, the findings reveal that the perceived ease of use and usefulness of the University's online learning management systems are impacted by the series of training organized and conducted by the Graduate School department, as well as the necessity to adapt due to the current circumstance. Furthermore, findings suggest that professors’ positive views about the utilization of learning management systems are important if the University's graduate education is to successfully transition from the traditional approach to online learning. This emphasizes that teachers are critical stakeholders in education, and their views about adopting online learning have a big effect on students' perspectives and motivation about online learning. Results of the study served as bases for the faculty development plan of the Graduate School Department.
