Why do we need a university education?

Higher education plays a strategic role in the country’s economic, social, and political development projects. So it’s time to check it out.
University education plays a strategic role worldwide, especially in Colombia, in the economic, social, and political development projects to which the country is committed.
Students need a university faculty capable of educating the new generations to competently and responsibly take on the obligations necessary for constructing the developing modern society.
However, there is a consensus that the current higher education does not meet the needs of Colombian society either qualitatively or quantitatively. And although there are several private universities in Bogotá with an excellent level of education, in general, according to international tests, such as PISA, the quality still lags.
To answer the constant question of what university students need, it is essential to analyze various aspects, such as the requirements of the global context in the present, which is characterized by the knowledge society. The nature of the relationship between science, technology, and social relations; the monastic university with civil society and the state. And the development of the university campus in Colombia, among others.
Several experts and researchers have focused their studies mainly on the field structure of the University of Colombia at its various levels, from the political and economical to the academic, scientific, and social classes, questioning its main problems and the need for fundamental changes in the orientation of both the program contents and in the form of promoting the teaching-learning processes.
As a result, for several decades, there has been a latent urgency for the country’s universities to develop a vision for the future, which will allow students and the higher education system, in general, to focus their efforts on the development and consolidation of training and research programs that are considered strategic for achieving the goals set by society, especially in quality assurance.
Why is quality assurance necessary?
With the express aim of providing guarantees on the issues of assessment, certification, and accreditation of the quality of higher education in Colombia, the Ministry of Education has created within the education system the so-called system of quality assurance of higher education, which is formed by the bodies, measures, and strategies that apply to the performance of a professional who leaves the system during the process of establishing and establishing a higher education institution.
As the educational portfolio ensures, this policy aims to ensure that “all students, regardless of their origin, social, economic and cultural situation, have the opportunity to acquire knowledge, develop the skills and values necessary to live, coexist, be productive, continue learning throughout life. The development of this policy is based on the articulation of all levels of education (primary, preschool, primary, secondary and higher education) around a common approach to basic, civic and labor skills, a challenge posed in the sector plan – Educational Revolution 2006-2010”.
We can say that it is crucial to strengthen the role of institutions, the capacity for training in multidisciplinary areas and culture, and increase investment in research and development to continue to focus on accelerating the generation of skills and knowledge, thereby ensuring the quality of education with a view to the citizens of the XXI century.
