AbstractHigher education has been given the responsibility of training subjects to face the problems and conflicts that are in society in order to achieve economic and political development and a better quality of life in the social world. That is why the institutions seek to transmit both values and knowledge, which will allow the formation of generations of responsible people, with ethical and solidarity, reflective and critical, respectful of the national legal system based on scientific and technical knowledge; generations that can humanize the social world. In the case of Colombia, within the guidelines given by the Ministry of National Education, the different entities that are dedicated to this higher education generate paths and goals that account with the purpose described above from educational projects that give them identity. But this combination (regulation of the State and institutional identity) has led higher education institutions to use terms that account for that responsibility. Terms like human, person, and formative comprehensiveness that need to be loaded with meaning and to be studied with caution in each particular case. It is proposed a overview from Modern Ontological Personalism that provide clues that generate a clarification on the mentioned terms, in their purport and meaning, to work out ways of consistency while allowing coherence between the proposals of identity, the State and the pedagogical actions of institutions.
