SIERRA MOLINA, Teresa de J.; SEVILLA SANTO, Dora Esperanza  e  MARTIN PAVON, Mario José. The university professor, a resilient being: a look at professors’ work in the current educational environment. Diálogos sobre educ. Temas actuales en investig. educ. [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, 00006. ISSN 2007-2171.

This paper originated in a doctoral thesis whose aim was to analyze the way in which personal, social, professional and teaching practice aspects as well as organizational characteristics correlate to resilience, understood as the creation of new strategies faced with the necessity to resist, seen from a triadic perspective that takes into account the importance of having personal resources, a stable family environment and an external support network. This study was conducted based on a quantitative paradigm with a mixed method. Participants were tenured or part-time Psychology and Engineering professors. The instruments used were the Mexican Resilience Scale and a contextual questionnaire. The quantitative results show low resilience levels in most of the participants, built upon the influence of factors such as strength and confidence in oneself, social competence, perceived family support and structure, which relate in different ways according to the field and type of contract to religiousness, the perception of health situation and the involvement in activities added to teaching. These findings shed light on the need for a more positive organizational perspective that includes the training of professors as professionals, but also as individuals.
