Since January 2010, the Universidad de Talca has a University Social Responsibility Corporate Office (RSU in Spanish). This instance was created addressing the needs of a changing society and taking into account the role and commitment that the University has with the environment where it is inserted.

The RSU model of the Universidad de Talca raises four programmatic axis, all of them related and co-participative: from teaching and training; from the internal organization and organizational culture; from the transfer and social innovation of knowledge and from the ties to the environment.

For the University this latter axis, the generation of links within the territory, is a strategic matter. We do not seek passive beneficiaries of the offer produced by our Academic Institution. On the contrary, we establish relationships between partners, on equal terms with our other priority public and community partners.

This implies taking into account the opinions of others, put on the table a series of variables from different wills, seek agreements, integrate different perspectives, and incorporate multidisciplinary perspectives.

It is essential to attach the components of co-responsibility and citizen participation, and seek consensus of views in order to develop a coordinated and coherent system, through programs, proposals, projects and integrated and sustainable initiatives that are timely, relevant and significant and contributing to the solutions of the needs of the regional community, especially in those who seek equality, fairness and social justice.
