SALINAS, John J.  e  TAMAYO, Johnny. The Role of the Public University as a Public Wellness. Challenges in the Colombian case. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.2, pp.19-28. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642018000200019.

This paper explores and analyzes the inherent role of the public university in its function of contributing to the public wellness. Some ways of interpreting higher education as a public good are presented. Likewise, a brief approach is made to the Colombian higher education system and to certain dimensions of the public wellness to identify the most relevant challenges. The analysis provides a critical perspective on some important and challenging issues regarding the public purpose of government universities. It is concluded that one of the main functions of public universities to contribute to the public wellness is its promise of social justice. In the case of Colombia, access with equity and quality in all regions of the country in order to reduce the existing gaps must continue.

Palavras-chave : public wellness; public university; higher education; Colombian higher education; social justice.
