A study with quantitative design, non-experimental, transverse and correlational and which aims to describe the significant relationships between indicators of academic bodies of the State Public Universities in Mexico and indicators of programs, educational processes and outcomes is presented. Information from 44 institutions of higher education in state order, which submitted its Integral Program for Institutional Strengthening (PIFI) in 2013 with the Ministry of Education was considered; the indicators were analyzed by processing programs in the statistical package for the social sciences (SPSS); correlation coefficients of the variables of consolidated academic bodies, consolidation and training and program variables, educational processes and outcomes were obtained. Based on the results it is concluded that the academic bodies, more than a decade after the implementation of the PIFI as a strategy to improve the quality of higher education, still shows no significant relationship with the good quality of the offered educational programs.
