Resumen

Se ha publicado una gran cantidad de literatura sobre la sostenibilidad ambiental en el contexto de la educación superior; sin embargo, no existen estudios previos que hayan investigado de qué manera la sostenibilidad ambiental ha evolucionado en el contexto universitario y poco se sabe sobre las tendencias de investigación propias a este campo. El propósito principal de este estudio es identificar los temas más influyentes en la investigación sobre la sostenibilidad ambiental universitaria y la relación que existe entre ellos. Para ello, se realizó un análisis de coocurrencias de palabras clave en artículos científicos publicados entre 1989 y 2019, identificándose 23 palabras clave centrales. Luego se diseñó un mapa de asociaciones que muestra las relaciones entre los términos en conglomerados (clusters) temáticos. Se determinó que existen por lo menos tres áreas principales que soportan la investigación sobre la sostenibilidad ambiental en las universidades: educación ambiental, integración de la sostenibilidad ambiental y protección ambiental. Se analiza y se comenta cada una de estas áreas de investigación.
