The persistent changes that scientific and technological progress has in which society is submerged, demand to the teachers base of universities, through schools, teach students to link theory with practice, to explore, transform or change it to scenes of daily life, with the whole intention to promote enthusiasm for investigation. This research is a quantitative type with a cross-sectional design, using: Cronbach’s Alpha method to determine the reliability of the instruments, the X2 statistic, and the Kendall´s Tau- b and c statistics. 10 variables were studied. Results: 55% full-time teachers do investigation; 42% of them have an emphasis on their discipline with a practice and social orientation, 55% make 1 to 5 publications in 3 years, published in arbitrated journals, national and international collaboration is low, 93% do not receive funding to carry out investigation, a scarce 12% is in the National System of Researchers (SNI by its initials in Spanish), 62% full-time teachers are convinced that their training in methodology is scarce and they urgently need training in this area, where economic remuneration is a motivation to do this activity.
