  • Abraça Mundo project holds first meeting with PEC-G students

    Publicado em Wednesday May 23rd, 2018 às 09:43 AM

    On 11 may 2018 UFSC held the first meeting of the Abraça Mundo Project. Developed by undergraduate students from the Administration Program, the project aims to promote the integration between students from the Programa Estudantes-Convênio de Graduação (PEC-G) and the academic community in general.  PEC-G is a cooperation agreement between the Brazilian government and other developing countries (from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean), with which Brazil maintains educational and cultural agreements, with the purpose of developing human resources. UFSC is associated with PEC-G since 1970 and has graduated near 600 students through the program.

    By the end of the meeting, a coffee break with the project’s developers and the PEC-G students was offered, resulting in a moment of cultural exchange that contributed for the improvement of the project.
