The Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, UFRGS (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul) is a century-old educational institution nationally and internationally recognized. It is centered in Porto Alegre – the capital city of the State of Rio Grande do Sul – and it offers academic programs from all different fields of knowledge, for all stages of education, ranging from elementary to graduate school. The qualification of its faculty, composed mostly of master’s and doctorate degree holders, the continuous updating of the infra-structure of laboratories and libraries, the increase to student assistance, as well as the prioritization of its national and international involvement are policies in constant development. More than 30 thousand people circulate its facilities in search of receiving one of the top 10 most qualified educations in Brazil. This, combined with its leading research programs and expressive community outreach, grants UFRGS to be ranked among the best universities in the country. As a public institution dedicated to serving the community and to building its future with a critical consciousness, UFRGS respects diversity, prioritizes innovation and, above all, reaffirms its commitment to education and spreading of knowledge, inspired by ideals of freedom and solidarity.
