Social commitment in organizations: a look at Universidad del Valle
Since their inception, social commitment in universities has been present, thereby establishing a social contract between these institutions and society, which materializes through strategies and actions that meet the social environment’s needs. This paper seeks to analyze that commitment through a case study applied to the Universidad del Valle, which employed a descriptive analysis that consisted of applying focused interviews that saw the participation by 80% of those responsible for the social projection. The content analysis method was applied for analysis, coupled with a documentary analysis of scientific texts and reports from the University’s Outreach and Strategic Development Plans Divisions. The above showed that the University has strategies in place for building a fairer society and carries out high-impact actions on society, demonstrating its vocation to service and the fulfillment of its commitment to the development of the surrounding environment.
