SAENZ ZAPATA, Orlando et al. Institutionalization of the environmental commitment of colombian universities. Civilizar [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.33, pp.189-208. ISSN 1657-8953.

Through this work we intend to identify aspects of the institutionalization of environmental commitment in a group of Colombian universities from five established areas: government, teaching, research, extension and management. To this end, a survey of 25 questions was applied, based on the RISU project: "Definition of indicators for the evaluation of sustainability policies in Latin American universities". The analysis, of descriptive statistical nature, was elaborated based on a scale between 1 and 25 points, with five intervals of equal magnitude to measure and classify the environmental commitment level of the universities. The survey was answered by 36 universities in the country. The average level found in the commitment of the Colombian IES is high, with a value of 18 points. The areas in which the commitment is highest, are those of research and teaching, with an average value of 4.0 out of 5.0 possible. They are followed by extension (3.6), management (3.5) and government (3, 3).
