Resumen


La manera de actuar y construir la identidad profesional de los académicos en una profesión compleja y sujeta a presiones, depende de la postura asumida en su cultura institucional. Se sondearon, mediante un cuestionario y entrevistas, las representaciones de la vida académica en la Universidad de Minho (Braga-Portugal), una universidad de enseñanza-investigación, según la potencial disonancia entre valores institucionales y personales. Se identificaron disonancias concernientes a enseñanza, investigación, clima laboral, relaciones y liderazgo, reflejo del desajuste persona/organización. La insatisfacción resultante coexiste con esfuerzos de autorrealización. Los académicos luchan por preservar su identidad, sabiendo que las prioridades institucionales pueden contrariar sus ideales. Reconocer la disonancia como elemento vital en una cultura de respeto hacia la diversidad, permitiría negociar entendimientos entre la comunidad académica real o factible. La investigación de la experiencia académica debería expandirse e introducirse en la (re)definición estratégica de las políticas de desarrollo institucional.

Palabras clave
