ROSADO-MAY, Francisco J. Intercultural higher education for indigenous Yucatec Maya in Mexico. Anthropologica [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.39, pp.215-242. ISSN 0254-9212.

This work presents important decisions made during the implementation of the intercultural educational model at the Universidad Intercultural Maya de Quintana Roo, Mexico, in a context of poverty and conditions of lagging behind the rest of the society of the indigenous Yucatec Maya population. Within the legal framework of public universities in Mexico, the financing of projects, the developing of intercultural pedagogy and designing the institutional settings, rested on elements that included learning/transmission and construction/innovation of knowledge that combined aspects of the local culture with conventional education. High figures on indicators such as retention, graduation rate, employability, and quality of the academic programs, along with opinions from alumni, achieved during the period of February 2007 to February 2015, indicate that the decisions and actions taken in the beginning of the construction of the intercultural model at UIMQRoo, were in the right direction.

Palabras clave : intercultural higher education; indigenous Maya; indigenous education; intercultural pedagogy.
