Discurso en la presentación de solicitud como rector de la UdeC

Deseo expresar mi reconocimiento y respeto, afecto también, para los compañeros universitarios que presentaron o presentarán solicitud para contender por el máximo cargo en la Universidad. Estoy seguro que la institución saldrá fortalecida de este proceso y que el primero de febrero iniciaremos otra etapa luminosa para la Universidad, para Colima y la educación superior mexicana.

En especial, agradezco emocionadamente a las personas que abrieron un espacio en sus agendas para venir a acompañarme en este momento tan importante en mi vida profesional y humana: el registro como aspirante a la rectoría de nuestra casa de estudios, de donde orgullosamente egresé como licenciado en educación superior hace 23 años y a la que, desde entonces, he servido incondicionalmente como profesor investigador y funcionario.

Debo decir que la universidad ha sido generosa conmigo; con su apoyo logré estimulantes retos  académicos y laborales: cursé mi maestría en pedagogía en la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la UNAM y en 2009 obtuve, de esa misma institución, un doctorado en pedagogía.

Gracias a la confianza que depositaron en mí los anteriores rectores y el actual, el Dr. Miguel Ángel Aguayo López, desempeñé cargos que me permitieron conocer las entrañas de la universidad y estrechar la mano de  los universitarios: fui director de la Facultad de Pedagogía,  luego director general de Educación Media Superior, al mismo tiempo, asesor de la Secretaría de Educación Pública y Coordinador de la Red Nacional del Nivel Medio Superior de ANUIES. Con el maestro Aguayo, primero fui director general de Educación Superior, luego coordinador general de Docencia y con la actual estructura, secretario académico.

He sido profesor del bachillerato semiescolarizado (que fundé con el doctor Carlos Salazar), profesor de licenciatura y posgrado. Como funcionario he caminado cada una de las 63 escuelas que tiene la Universidad en toda la geografía colimense, lo que me autoriza a decir que la conozco, que sé de la enorme valía que representan cada una, sobre todo los bachilleratos en lugares pequeños, y sé también de las fortalezas y posibilidades, sé del promisorio futuro que nos depara si continuamos el camino de la internacionalización, ya reconocido en dos rankings latinoamericanos recientes.

Estoy aquí, en este día, por el respaldo que me han brindado muchos universitarios que, como yo, deseamos que nuestra casa continúe consolidándose  como una de las universidades de mayor prestigio nacional y creciente presencia internacional, sin perder su sentido humanista y vocación social. Estoy convencido que la educación es el único bastión que puede salvar a nuestro país de esta grave crisis y, como magistralmente afirmara el doctor Fernando Savater en el Teatro Universitario, es también la lucha contra la fatalidad que hoy sume a millones y millones de mexicanos en la pobreza. Necesitamos profundizar nuestra responsabilidad social con los que menos saben y menos tienen.

Los cambios en las instituciones educativas no se hacen borrando el pasado o pretendiendo desconocer lo hecho. Respeto la historia y presente de la Universidad de Colima, a sus rectores y constructores, su comunidad de ayer y hoy. Hay tiempos y ciclos, y apuesto a un cambio generacional, a una universidad que explote aun más su potencial y que en cada espacio nos comprometamos para sus estudiantes, profesores, egresados y trabajadores nos sigamos sintiendo orgullosos de ella, porque ella se siente también orgullosa de nosotros.

Quiero ser rector por una universidad sin adjetivos, que prioritariamente cumpla sus funciones sustantivas, las que constituyen su corazón, la vocación de la universidad; me refiero a la formación de seres humanos, la investigación relevante y la extensión de sus beneficios a la sociedad.

Soy un convencido de la educación superior pública y de la universidad pública. Defiendo también que la educación es un derecho humano, un bien público y una responsabilidad social. Ese es un compromiso indeclinable que defenderé siempre.

En este proyecto que pretendo encabezar caben todos, las mujeres primero, los jóvenes, los hombres, incluso los niños que, como mi hija Mariana Belén y los de tantas personas, asisten a los múltiples cursos que se organizan en ella, porque la Universidad es una casa abierta a las múltiples expresiones de la cultura, la inteligencia, la diversidad y a todas las personas.

La Universidad de Colima es legado y patrimonio común, es de todos y debemos cuidarla todos. Por eso juntos, mujeres y hombres, debemos construir la sólida universidad que se proyectará hacia la mitad del siglo 21.

Finalmente, quiero asegurarles a todos los que están aquí reunidos y a los que no pudieron asistir pero me han enviado sus expresiones de solidaridad y respaldo, que tengo un profundo amor por la Universidad de Colima, inmensamente más grande que mis intereses personales, por eso no duden en que juntos podremos dignificar el futuro de nuestra alma máter, que también es el nuestro.

    The rector should be a person who is dedicated to education, not a politician.

    It’s good that you know the university, its schools, teachers and especially students.

  31. Ricardo Gomez Guerrero 1B dice:
