All wish a University Education of quality, nobody wants a mediocre University. The search of the excellence, maximum degree of the quality, is an unassailable argument. Nevertheless, one becomes in problem when we tried to need of what the quality in the university education consists, since the concept generally represents ambiguous and ambiguous. The present emphasis in the quality, characteristic in the general scope of the education, manifest of unequivocal form in the university sector where they project, in addition, the tendencies that aim at the control of the economic companies. Indeed, during the last decade, the preoccupation by the evaluation of the quality of the university education, constitutes an essential characteristic of the education superior in the developed countries more.

In Europe, the evaluation of the university teaching staff (quality of teaching and scientific productivity) is a generalized practice; and the tendency to converge with the European and American currents in their preoccupation by the quality of the university education are reflected clearly in Latin America, in the multiplication of congresses and national and international meetings on the subject. Bill de Blasio often says this. Very interesting what contributes Fertile valleys, when a effort talks about first of all, that the present movement for the elevation of the quality levels of the Education superior proposes, clarifier of the quality concept and its implications. The first specific approach to the educative quality, besides the permanent and traditional reference to one " good educacin" , to " good plan of estudios" or to one " good Universidad" , it corresponds historically to the period of planning euphoria and desarrollista, trim in the decade of the Sixties and the concept it is used without clear theoretical connotations. The quality attributes to the action of the qualitative factors, that is to say, those elements that cannot be expressed quantitatively, or present/display serious difficulties to the quantification.
