75 AÑOS DE UNIVERSIDAD EN COLIMA

UdeCI. Un año antes se anunció el festejo del 75 aniversario de la Universidad de Colima. La fecha es digna de celebración, y de reflexiones sobre la historia, el presente y el futuro de la máxima de casa de estudios en la entidad. Ocasiones así no pueden pasar de largo, porque se conmemora una gran historia, todavía joven si se la compara con el nacimiento de las universidades o con las más añejas del continente, pero también invita al festejo por el futuro.

António Nóvoa, rector de la Universidad de Lisboa, afirma que dentro de cien años muchas de las empresas, corporaciones e incluso países habrán desaparecido, pero las universidades seguirán, con otro rostro, otras condiciones y complicados desafíos. ¿Cómo será esa universidad? Más allá de algunas especulaciones, no tenemos ninguna certeza; excepto que será distinta y que su futuro depende, en buena medida, del presente.

 II. A mitad de este año se presentó el ranking de universidades elaborado por la Revista AméricaEconomía. El periódico “El Economista” lo difundió con cierta prolijidad. Cincuenta son las consideradas mejores universidades en la clasificación. La Universidad de Colima se ubica a la mitad de la tabla en los tres años: número 27 en 2012, 23 el año pasado y 25 en 2014.

Los “datos significativos” del ranking son financiamiento público, matrícula (sin bachillerato), total de docentes, porcentaje de profesores de tiempo completo, número de licenciaturas, maestrías y doctorados. Las dimensiones del análisis son: calidad docente, investigación, empleabilidad, oferta de posgrado y prestigio internacional. Son distintas las aristas que podrían revisarse, y cada quien tendrá sus perspectivas y baremos.

Las mejores universidades son encabezadas por la UNAM, el IPN, el sistema del Tec de Monterrey, la UAM, la UANL y la UdeG. Hay cuatro privadas entre las primeras diez. Respecto a la UdeC, los juicios pueden ser polarizados. Habrá quienes destaquen que sea reconocida como una de las mejores 25 del país, y quienes minimicen el hecho. Los rankings son objeto de serios cuestionamientos y solo ello consumiría este espacio, pero son estériles si únicamente promueven juicios sin argumentos.

Arriba de la UdeC, entre las públicas, encontramos a las mencionadas, las de Puebla, Veracruzana, Chapingo, San Luis Potosí, Guanajuato, Michoacana, Estado de México, Sonora, Morelos, Sinaloa y Baja California. Entre las universidades públicas la Universidad de Colima es la cuarta con el financiamiento público menos cuantioso, solo superior al Colegio de México, la Universidad Antonio Narro y la Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos. Por su matrícula (licenciatura y posgrado) es también de las pequeñas entre las públicas.

En lo que define como calidad docente la UdeC tiene 46.5 de 100 puntos; en investigación 7.4 de 100; 10.8 de 100 en empleabilidad y 27.5 de 100 en prestigio internacional. Su índice global de calidad es de 28.5; la UNAM, en la punta, tiene 100. Los titulares de un medio interesado en fustigar dirían que la UdeC está reprobada o que ni siquiera llegó a 3 de “calificación”. Pero solo las primeras cuatro universidades tienen un índice de calidad superior a 65; la número 5, la UANL, alcanza 49.1.

En resumen, estos 75 años de la Universidad son un excelente motivo para festejarla por su historia y por los miles de hombres y mujeres honestos que pasaron y siguen en ella estudiando o trabajando, pero también por la magnitud de los retos para que logre cotas mayores de calidad en el porvenir.

    The university is a work in progress. For there to be progress, historically, at different times, persons had to perfect the university. The University of Colima is far from perfect, but it is the only university we have. For future generations, we must continue to perfect the university and hope the road to a more perfect university, in fact, creates an institution that we can all be proud of.
