Resumen

A 25 años de recuperada la democracia en Chile, las normas institucionales de las universidades regionales del Estado mantienen su contenido marcadamente autoritario, pretendidamente neutro en su definición institucional e intervenido por el Gobierno Central en la designación de los integrantes de sus autoridades colegiadas superiores. En este contexto, el tránsito hacia la democratización de estas instituciones, y su legitimación como instrumentos de desarrollo regional, pasa necesariamente por la derogación de tales cuerpos normativos y su sustitución por otros que les aseguren un funcionamiento democrático, orientado hacia fines y valores construidos a través de procesos deliberativos y participativos.
