ROJAS LOZANO, Victoria Raquel; NAVARRO MARTINEZ, Sergio Iván  and  ESCOBAR POTENCIANO, Amelia. Higher Intercultural Education in Tabasco. A history in construction. Alteridad [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.1, pp.72-82. ISSN 1390-8642.

This paper presents the educative experience called: Universidad Intercultural del Estado de Tabasco (UIET) and data comprehends a period of ten years (2005 to 2015). Text shows, from a critical view, the University’s historical development and the diverse kinds in which intercultural education is conceived in this Higher Education Institution (IES for its Spanish acronym). The process of UIET’s formation is analyzed here as well as the actors who have been involved, the different building steps in the process, complications and challenges faced. Selection of sources was addressed to two kinds of data, one referred to official documents in this university and another related to the use of searching methodology and techniques to identify, through the teachers and students experience, the position of these actors about development and future at UIET.

Keywords : Higher education; empirical researching; history; cultural policy; interethnic relations; pedagogical practice.
