About the Center for the Recognition of Human Dignity
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
- Contextual form
- Equality on being dialogic
- 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.
The Center for the Recognition of Human Dignity serves as an Ombudsperson, addressing any situations in which human dignity has been infringed upon —such as in the cases of gender violence— in strict compliance with the principles, codes and protocols that guide our Institution:
We are passionate about disruption that generates value.
Empathy and Inclusion
People are always our priority.
We exercise freedom with responsibility.
Together we will fulfill the vision.
We are working to achieve a sustainable world.
Principle of equality and non-discrimination
At Tecnológico de Monterrey, we promote and value diversity, and, therefore, we do not discriminate on the basis of age, ethnic origin, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, social condition, health status, religious beliefs, political doctrine or disability.
