La producción intelectual en las universidades privadas venezolanas
Palabra y Realidad (2009)
  • Gus Gregorutti
Over the last 30 years, throughout the Latin America region, there has been an increasing
number of private higher education institutions. This trend has brought both some
tensions with the existing and dominant models of tertiary education and, from the other
side, the new governmental demands to allow these new players to be fully recognized
in society. One of these requirements is research productivity as a defining feature for
higher education. Venezuela is not an exception. Governments are asking private
universities to produce knowledge in order to be accredited and recognized within the
national system of universities. However, many of these private institutions are not
ready and don’t have the organizational culture to produce discoveries even though
they would like to do so. This paper explores perceptions of 46 faculty members about
faculty research productivity in 4 private universities in the area of Caracas city. Results
  • Private higher education,
  • faculty research productivity,
  • organizational culture
