About the Center for the Recognition of Human Dignity

Eugenio Garza Sada

Today, and since our foundation, the recognition of human dignity is pivotal for our Institution:

"Respect for human dignity is above any economic consideration."

Don Eugenio Garza Sada
Founder of Tecnológico de Monterrey

Human Dignity at Tec

For Tec de Monterrey, dignity is an intrinsic quality of human beings, which demands recognition in every circumstance.

Each human being is unique and inimitable in their own story, which is why their dignity implies:

  • Deserving to be treated well
  • Appropriation of opportunities
  • Freedom
  • Contextual form
  • Equality on being dialogic
  • Self-determination
  • Being treated with respect and recognition
  • Openness to reasoning
  • Autonomy and consent

These elements have been present throughout the history of philosophical thought and comprise part of our institutional model to encompass human dignity and facilitate decision making.
