MOLINA BENITEZ, Jorge Andrés. A Tout throughout Two Identity Areas: University and Cyberspace. Rev. Lasallista Investig. [online]. 2015, vol.12, n.2, pp.204-214. ISSN 1794-4449.

This article is a conceptual recovery of two terms that are key in the research work titled: "Relación entre de la identidad construida por los estudiantes de la Escuela de Artes en las redes sociales y en los espacios académicos de la Institución Universitaria Salazar y Herrera". Those terms are university identity and virtual identity. Regarding the first one, some considerations about the expectations, interests and aspirations of students concerning their formation programs and the way these factors interact with the organizational philosophies of higher education institutions, are mentioned. About the second concept, explicative models regarding the construction of the self-identity in the cyberspace are remarked, assumed as a consensual space and a place in which subjectivity is expressed. Besides, the implications of individual identity when someone is a part of a virtual community are exposed. In those communities the others are not only agents of a communicative process, but elements that contribute to the redefinition of being.

Keywords : university Identity; university; virtual identity; cyberspace; "online" being.
