The Colombian context shows harsh social, educational, and economicalrealities which have become favorite topics of study at the Universities. This text presents reflections on the formation of psychologists in Colombia and the way this formation becomes articulated with the demands made by the Colombian context. In this reflection, standpoints such as De Sousa Santos’ (2005) are brought to the table, in order to suggest that the formation of Psychologists should take into account aspects such as keeping education as a public good, defending scientific and pedagogical autonomy, and building pluriuniversitary knowledge. In order to be able to attain those goals, it is suggested that certain student skills and concepts be fostered, such as the installation of the question, knowledge that is historical and geografically-linked, the ability to move in different contexts and the compassionate ability.
