The Sendai Framework states that all sectors, including the education sector, must be committed to the achievement of its goals, with a priority on understanding disaster risk (UNISDR, 2015). Understanding of disaster risk from universities begins in the classroom and throughout the university, especially in the curriculum, making it necessary to incorporate risk management into undergraduate and graduate careers. Therefore, it was considered of great importance to know the perception of disaster risk by university professors, since the figure of the professor is a key factor in the process of understanding the subject. The study was based on a comparative study between universities and faculties of the Universidad de las Américas in Panama (UDELAS) and the pedagogical faculties of the Universidad Central “Marta Abreu” de las Villas, (UCLV) Cuba, based on a non-experimental - transactional - descriptive design. The instrument developed for data collection was a questionnaire. The results of this study allowed us to compare the degree of knowledge about disaster risk, the way in which risk is identified in institutions, the relationship with the environment and the behavior towards these events of the population participating in this study.
