Example text

The Commission states that the proposal recognizes tensions between citizenship and competitiveness, equity and performance, and integration and decentralization, but concentrates on the sphere of complementariness that exists on each of these planes. The strategy for change is oriented towards the following directions: i) from a political point of view, attempt to assume knowledge production and diffusion activities as strategic, long term tasks that require the broadest consensus possible between the different social actors and a stable financial commitment to their development; ii) from a contents point of view, to focalize action on the results of education, training and science and technology and on their articulation with performance demands from people, enterprises and institutions in the different spheres of society; iii) from an institutional point of view, break the isolation of the educational establishment and the generation and the transmission of knowledge and introduce action modalities in which the actors have more room for autonomy in decisions and greater responsibility for results.

This mission must include the task of “developing endogenous capacities to acquire and apply existing knowledge and to create new knowledge”. Similarly, it is the task of higher education “to educate responsible, informed and active citizens as well as highly qualified specialists”. It should be added with respect to this vision that one of the most important missions of higher education is concerned with ethic and cultural aspects: “to preserve and affirm cultural identity, promote the propagation and creation of cultural values, to protect and foster cultural diversity and to participate actively in the development of intercultural understanding”.

Based on such principles, higher education has two important missions before it: “to actively participate in solving the main global, regional and local problems (such as poverty, malnutrition, illiteracy, social exclusion, exacerbation of inequalities between nations and individuals, widening of the gap in science and technology between industrialized and developing countries, and environmental protection), and to work intensely on the generation of proposals and recommendations that promote sustainable human development, the extension of knowledge, universal respect for human rights, equality of opportunities between men and women, justice and the application of democratic principles within their own institutions and in society, understanding between nations and ethnic groups, religions, cultures and other groups, in favor of a culture of peace and non-violence and in the construction of intellectual and moral solidarity”.
