Abstract: Governmental policies, such as educational ones, require money from taxes to implement them. Therefore, a government must spend its resources in such a way to maximise the benefits. However, to evaluate the Public Higher Education Institutions (P–HEI) is a very complex task since many factors that can be assessed are involved. In this study, we focus on the performance of P–HEI in three activities: teaching, research, and knowledge dissemination. To accomplish this end, we develop a Data Envelopment Analysis Model to evaluate the efficiency of each activity, separately. Using an official database called ExECUM, we compute the efficiency of 40 Mexican P–HEI from year 2008–2016. The funds allocated for the government are an input in our study.
