Public university and its functions: the spanish model

The traditional functions of the universities, teaching research and social,
are complex to develop because they require situations of freedom and independence, sufficient economic resources, a humanistic base that is ever
less valued in international ranking and innovative creative thought that responds
to the present-day problems of their environment. Our first aim is
to clarify the concept of the public University considering it rather from an
ideological perspective. This ideological concept involves, among other factors,
easy financial access to its studies and the development of a series of
ethical values and a humanist culture.
