    En este documento se analizan las políticas implementadas por la Universidad del Magdalena para garantizar el acceso de los grupos vulnerables a la educación superior, definiendo como vulnerables a los bachilleres desplazados, las comunidades indígenas, los estudiantes afrocolombianos, la mujer cabeza de familia de estrato bajo, y a los bachilleres provenientes de colegios públicos. Teóricamente, el estudio está asociado a los aportes de la affirmative action, la cual contempla la intención deliberada de eliminar cualquier ápice de discriminación en el desarrollo de las sociedades y las instituciones.******This document analyzes the politics implemented by university of Magdalena to guarantee the access of higher education to vulnerable groups.
