In accordance with Silva Henríquez Catholic University’s resolutions 79, 80 and 81 of 2018, which consider:
- The 2012-2020 strategic action plan
- The strategic objective: “To create graduate divisions that offer master and doctorate degrees for each school. These divisions will have independent financial resources and outstanding faculty members committed to teaching, academic advising and research development.”
- The strategic objective: “To create research centers for each school, associated to their graduate divisions. These research centers will have dedicated research teams in charge of carrying out projects, obtaining external funding and disseminating research findings in academic events and primary sources that foster interdisciplinarity and are recognized by the national research system.”
Consequently, the university created the school of education’s graduate division, that will oversee the education research center and the graduate degree programs offered by the school of education.
The name “Research Center for Socio-Educational Transformation” (Centro de Investigación para la Transformación SocioEducativa, CITSE) came into being as a result of the collaborative work between faculty members from its different lines of research.
To produce and disseminate knowledge on education through interdisciplinary research that contributes to educational development and transformation from different perspectives.
To become a prominent education research center of excellence, nationally and internationally, that contributes to the field in accordance with socio-educational policy and contexts.
