The State of Veracruz is complex and diverse, with enormous natural resources, and aware of its profound contrasts between wealth and misery, modernity and backwardness. Veracruz is a state determined to rethink its future as an entity in which all Veracruzans would look for opportunities to get a worthy life with better conditions looking forward to having a pleasing and promising personal and family life. Therefore, Veracruz's Public University is assuming the transformation to become a fully open institution to change and attached to constant innovation to achieve this goal.
In this context, the proposal assumes this responsibility, capitalizes on what has already done and seeks to nourish with the vision of university students with the primacy of academics and the leadership of students, professors, researchers and officials committed to the aggrandizement of University. It seeks the materialization of a universal ideal whose purpose is pursuing the truth generating and applying specialized knowledge and promoting attitudes, skills, and values to serve the sustainable development of our society.
In order to achieve this, it is necessary to carry out activities ranging from an adequate educational orientation, the updating of curricula and degree programs, the establishment of new student support systems, the provision of tutorials and academic advisory services, the expansion of student scholarships, internalization programs, till the diversification of learning activities (learning of documentary and bibliographic research, languages, theoretical computer science, lab activities, workshops, real life professional practice, sports, artistic and cultural activities).

Encourage students from different degrees at the public university in Veracruz to get an integral and harmonious training: intellectual, human, social and professional.

This paper provides how to achieve the goal considering integral training as a fundamental part of the development of a top quality professional, attaching outstanding importance to:
human, intellectual, professional, and social training, for mainstreaming of the theoretical (knowledge), heuristic (skills), and axiological (values) axes.

Lastly, as consequence of a more demanding environment, the generation and application of knowledge has become a priority, all Universities, mostly public, faced the imminent, competition for satisfying the society requirements, being the most feasible reaction enforcing a new educational model that allows the integral and harmonious training for the students, including as much as professional, as intellectual and as human, empowering them to promote social coexistence and respectful of diversity, achieving this by mainstreaming the educational experiences in the educational programs of the different degrees and diverse activities that constitute the curricula.
