Honrar honra

Posted by Juan Carlos Y√°√Īez Velazco

Le√≠ con alegr√≠a la noticia del egreso de la primera generaci√≥n del nuevo plan de estudios de arquitectura en la Universidad de Colima. El marco no pod√≠a ser mejor: el Teatro Universitario.¬†Varias razones tengo para ese sentimiento: acompa√Ī√© en distintos momentos el desarrollo del proyecto que condujo a la propuesta, controvertida y discutida en distintos niveles, pero defendida con vehemencia y solvencia por el director y el grupo de profesoras y profesores. Por eso, nunca tuve duda que, a pesar de las imperfecciones propias de todo plan de estudios, la garant√≠a de su √©xito era el compromiso del profesorado. Eso pens√© mientras prepar√°bamos la aprobaci√≥n del plan, luego sus normas complementarias¬†y hoy sigo crey√©ndolo. Siendo perfectible, el plan caminar√° vigoroso en las pr√≥ximas generaciones. As√≠ lo creo.

Otra poderosa raz√≥n¬†que me alegra¬†es el reconocimiento que los egresados hicieron de Carlos Salazar Silva, rector de la Universidad de Colima entre 1997 y 2005. Del rector Salazar Silva solo tengo expresiones elogiosas y de gratitud, por eso, que se le reconozca casi ocho a√Īos despu√©s de dejar la rector√≠a¬†es¬†un gesto encomiable de los arquitectos, pues los reconocimientos y premios¬†concedidos¬†mientras se ocupa el cargo dejan una sensaci√≥n incomparable a cuando ocurre tiempo despu√©s.

Con el¬†doctor Salazar tuve la fortuna de dirigir los bachilleratos de la Universidad durante los ochos a√Īos de su rectorado, en un periodo que nuestra instituci√≥n se convirti√≥ en un punto de referencia en el panorama nacional, lo que nos permiti√≥ coordinar a las 25 universidades p√ļblicas que entonces ten√≠amos bachillerato, entre ellas, la UNAM, la Universidad de Guadalajara, la Aut√≥noma de Sinaloa¬†y la Aut√≥noma de Nuevo Le√≥n. En¬†ese lapso recibimos innumerables ¬†invitaciones para comentar el proceso de reforma acad√©mica¬†emprendido¬†y compartir recomendaciones.

Ese¬†gran¬†prestigio¬†institucional¬†se vio reflejado en la m√°s cuantiosa cifra que recibi√≥ el bachillerato de la Universidad de Colima en las √ļltimas d√©cadas (gracias al Programa Integral de Fortalecimiento Institucional de la Educaci√≥n Media Superior), y en la invitaci√≥n que recib√≠ de la Secretar√≠a de Educaci√≥n P√ļblica para asesorar a la Direcci√≥n General del Bachillerato entre 2001 y 2005.

Fue el trabajo que hicimos, que hicieron los¬†entonces¬†31 bachilleratos, lo que le dio¬†al doctor Salazar la autoridad para luchar por el reconocimiento del bachillerato universitario, y para pugnar porque ese nivel tuviera espacio en la agenda de los rectores reunidos en el Consejo de Universidades P√ļblicas e Instituciones Afines de la ANUIES;¬†y para que fu√©ramos nosotros, la Universidad de Colima, quienes coordin√°ramos el apartado correspondiente a la educaci√≥n media superior para el programa educativo del periodo¬†presidencial¬†de Vicente Fox.

Pero todo el trabajo de la comunidad habr√≠a tenido menos resonancia sin la convicci√≥n con que Carlos Salazar abander√≥ la batalla por la media superior. De las muchas pruebas de ello conviene recordar quiz√° una, la m√°s personal pero simb√≥lica:¬†su hija¬†estudi√≥ en el Bachillerato 4. Por justicia tengo que decir que su convicci√≥n era la misma de su esposa, la se√Īora Mary, Mar√≠a Hern√°ndez, una mujer a quien uno solo de sus actos describe. Una ma√Īana me llam√≥ el director del Bachillerato¬†4, muy temprano, inquieto y preocupado me dijo: ‚ÄúJuan Carlos, qu√© hago. Est√° aqu√≠ la esposa del rector haciendo fila, y todav√≠a falta mucha gente para que le toque. Ya le pedimos que se pase a la direcci√≥n pero nos dice que no, que esperar√° su turno¬†como todas las personas‚ÄĚ. La se√Īora Mary hab√≠a acudido al plantel para inscribir a su hija por vez primera. No hagas nada, le dije, d√©jala.¬†Esper√≥ su turno y siempre atendi√≥ sus tareas, como ¬†la asistencia a las reuniones de padres y madres de familia.

La hija no es menos excepcional. Tengo una an√©cdota tambi√©n con ella. Paulina, alumna de excelencia, llevaba ya 5 o 6 ‚Äúbecas de excelencia‚ÄĚ, por haber terminado su semestre con calificaci√≥n de diez. Para la ceremonia de premiaci√≥n, una de las m√°s¬†emotivas con los¬†estudiantes, seleccionamos a los muchachos que, por sus resultados, podr√≠an dirigir el mensaje estelar.¬†Eleg√≠ a Paulina Salazar Hern√°ndez¬†sin consultar al rector. Habl√© con ella y le ofrec√≠ la ocasi√≥n. Me agradeci√≥ y con¬†serenidad a sus 17 o 18 a√Īos me dijo que no quer√≠a que se tomara como un gesto¬†derivado de su relaci√≥n paterna, que prefer√≠a ese lugar para otro de sus compa√Īeros de una generaci√≥n estupenda.¬†A m√≠ me habr√≠a gustado, lo confieso, ver la cara orgullosa del rector y su esposa cuando ella dirigiera el mensaje en esa ceremonia, por los m√©ritos de Paulina y por la enorme lucha del doctor Salazar para dignificar el bachillerato.

Por eso, y por muchas otras razones de peso, celebro tan merecido reconocimiento al doctor Carlos Salazar Silva, porque sus hechos están registrado en la memoria histórica la institución y de quienes laboramos a su lado. Felicidades al doctor Carlos Salazar. Felicidades, por supuesto, a los nuevos arquitectos.
