Pro-Rectory of Extension of the UFRGS - PROREXT

PROREXT (Pro-Rectory of Extension) is responsible for establishing social and cultural relations with different segments of society, composing part of the great educational task entrusted to the University, based on the integral formation process of students. In the dialogue with the community, it seeks subsidies that allow providing permanent answers to its demands and desires, reiterating the institutional social commitment as a way of insertion in actions to promote and guarantee democratic values of equality, social development and inclusion.

Extension actions in the area of culture, education and inclusion are valuable tools to create, in the society itself, learning environments and multidisciplinary groups demanded by the new socio-educational reality. As a reflection of classrooms and research laboratories, the Extension has the possibility of proposing and performing interdisciplinary projects inspired by solidarity and the inclusion of marginalized sectors, so that the profound political task of the University consists in its contribution to the growth of different social sectors.

The PROREXT is responsible for:

  • Formulating a diagnosis of the issues related to the Extension in the University;
  • Elaborating action policy proposals in Extension and coordinating the activities of bodies responsible for its implementation;
  • Coordinating programs of development, scholarships, exchanges and spread of the Extension;
  • Stimulating and articulating the academic units for the development of multi and interdisciplinary activities.
