Mision / Vision

To promote and spread universal knowledge in order to contribute to social, cultural and economic development of Brazil and Portuguese speaking countries – specially the African ones  –  regarding teaching as a practice of freedom and citizenship affirmation, by training professionals able to act over their present and indicate directions towards a future of solidarity and environmental concern.

Goals

To address the development problems of Brazil, African and Asian countries, namely the Portuguese-speaking ones (Angola, Mozambique, East Timor, Cape Verde, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Guinea Bissau).

The UNILAB experience focuses on the educational function of socializing to Brazilian and African students the universal scientific knowledge, in dialogue with different traditions, in an intercultural, cross-disciplinary and innovative perspective. It also aims at preparing citizens-professionals committed with South-South cooperation, capable of contributing to local sustainable development and promoting a systematic interaction between the University and the surrounding society, competent and qualified for the world of work, aware of the ethical commitments and the need to overcome social inequality.
