Description/achievement of initiative

Our university is committed to promote practices of sustainable development in campus in several ways. Since the year 2011, the university counts with a Social Responsibility Committee, which works to promote responsible practices among its students in several areas, such as environmental, social, and from citizens.

Implementation methodologies

Some of the activities the committee has performed are the journeys of Social Responsibility, inaugurate the recycling project in the university and become members of the Global Compact. Parallel to this, the department of Connection with the Community has as one of its axis to promote social responsibility. All the students at the university have to take a social responsibility class in their career period, they can be part of the volunteering program and the university is participating in projects that help urban marginal areas to develop in a sustainable way.
