Pontifícia Universidade Católica Do Rio De Janeiro (PUC RIO)

PUC-Rio is a non-profit philanthropic institution and was the first private higher education institution in the country, created in 1940 by the Catholic Church. Beyond providing education, PUC-Rio undertook the task of assisting the community, based on Christian ethical values, solidarity and human respect. It represents a space for achievement, overcoming challenges and development of its students and staff members.

PUC-Rio is, above all, a community of people, teachers, students and staff members united by a common interest in seeking the truth and acting in accordance with the needs of the society and with the ever changing world around us.
