LEON RUIZ, Daniel Olegario  and  URIBE SALAS, José Alfredo. Relevance in establishing a model of social responsibility in higher education institutions in the State of Michoacán de Ocampo - Mexico. RCUISRAEL [online]. 2023, vol.10, n.2, pp.13-37.  Epub Aug 10, 2023. ISSN 2631-2786.

University Social Responsibility is an action - vision, which can be understood as the commitment in actions that seek an improvement in the needs of social development in a framework of sustainability that universities assume with their own actors or stakeholders for and with society, this approach has gained strength in the last 22 years in Latin America, with the aim of raising awareness of values and implementing mechanisms and actions in Higher Education Institutions to establish a change of action and concordance to global requirements as precursor actors of local and regional development.

In Mexico this change has been slow and gradual, since it has not been able to consolidate in a structural way, due to the fact that it is not an organic form implemented in public higher education, which prevents the establishment of this new eclectic vision in the substantive functions of university and/or technological education.

In this sense, the objective of the present work was to carry out a closed and properly structured survey through a Likert-type scaling and based on the self-diagnoses carried out in Latin America by the Union of Social Responsibility, applied to Higher Education Institutions of the State of Michoacán de Ocampo, Mexico, who have not had an approach to the subject; obtaining with it an encouraging result, since it was possible to know the interest of knowing in an initial way this vision in these institutions, and, with it, to leave the possibility of carrying out later studies.

Keywords : social responsibility; higher education; development; educational model.
