Santa Cruz do Sul University (UNISC) is a young institution, which has learned in few years as an university how to take firm steps towards social inclusion, searching for determination and ethics to overcome challenges in benefit of collectivity, using science and technology and, especially, willpower to carry out.
As a producing and socializing of knowledge institution, our commitment is also to contribute for the building of a new social model, founded on the ideals of justice and equality. At the beginning of a new millennium, in which the secular humanism comes up against the rules of globalized and virtual capitalism, we have, more than ever, the challenge of keeping as the place of knowledge, of humanism and of discussion of the great purposes of the human being. The higher education institutions cannot summarize themselves to the satisfaction of the market demands. The training of qualified and competent professionals is just a part of the commitment which we have taken on. We are the main character in this process of social transformation, because only with the ethics, the humanism and trans-disciplinary ideal we will keep among the great education and searching institutions of nowadays.
