The present investigation was carried out in the University of Tarapacá located in the city of Arica, corresponding to the fifteenth region of Chile. Professors of different training plans and managers who fulfilled the contractual condition participated. The dimensions that were established in the study corresponded to the disposition towards curricular innovation, the change in the institution, structure and functioning, and the teacher as a curricular agent of change. Hence, the purpose of the research was to determine the attitudes of teachers to curricular innovation. For this, it was necessary to analyze the teachers' appreciation of their disposition that they expressed about the change for the curricular innovation process, to know the degree of appreciation that the professors and managers had in relation to how the process is being developed and to inquire about of their ideas, knowledge and beliefs in relation to the curricular innovation that is being carried out in the institution. The study is based on the theoretical references on change, the elements that make up the process of curricular innovation in the university context, the university teaching staff and the theories of attitudes.
