Resumen

Frente a la presión del gobierno para transformarse en instituciones de investigación, las universidades de Ecuador se enfrentan a un gran desafío. Basado en una revisión de la literatura en inglés, este trabajo intenta reunir algunas de las cosas que pueden ser aprendidas de las experiencias de otras universidades, en otros países, a las que se le han requerido la adopción de nuevas misiones y roles. Este documento sostiene que tales transformaciones tienen implicancias para la estructura y el gobierno de una institución, pero todavía más fundamentalmente para su cultura. Para que una transformación sea efectiva, debe tener en cuenta la necesidad de repensar las formas existentes (y quizás establecidas hace mucho tiempo) de hacer las cosas, incluyendo cómo y por quién son tomadas las decisiones, y cómo se enseña a los estudiantes. Vínculos con organizaciones regionales y comunitarias deben ser desarrollados, dado que estos pueden proporcionar un valioso catalizador para el cambio.
