Violence has reigned in Mexico for the last 12 years. There have been thousands of missing people in all the country, including students of higher education institutions. Violence has flourished in great part because of the corruption and impunity in Mexican institutions. There have been cases in which several of the problems of Mexican institutions arise simply because they do not obey the law or their own internal regulations. Higher education institutions are not free of violence. Even the biggest and most prestigious university of Mexico, the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) suffered violence in its main campus this year, which triggered demonstrations by hundreds of students and total work stoppage for several days. The Campus Azcapotzalco of the Metropolitan Autonomous University (UAM) has been without a President for one year and a half just because the Directive Board of the university disobeyed the law without any consequence. A group of Mexican higher education institutions participated with the government in a well known fraud scheme called the master scam. It is common that when universities are being brought to the judicial system they claim that they are autonomous and therefore noboby including the judicial power can judge them, therefore they assume that autonomy is sovereignty. On the contrary private universities have much less violence problems caused by their own authorities. Despite the violence problem the UNAM remains as the best Mexican university. The new Mexican Government has claimed that will pardon previous corruption but that it will severely penalized future corruption. Some of the Mexican universities are also passing by a very difficult economic situation because they do not have financial resources even to pay for salaries of their professors. We analyze some of the identified problems, their causes and posible solutions.
