In this paper we present an educational model called University Open to the Community. This model is inspired on the social needs and context of our University and aims to align our research efforts toward social impact. Universidad del Valle de Atemajac Campus León is very closed to a zone where people has not all the opportunities they deserved; in fact, it has been found one of the poorest zones in the region. Research, lecturing and social impact should be aligned in order to get the synergy we need in order to have real impact in our community. This project is on an early stage, however we are sure our initiative will impact not only our students and lectures, but our region.
