GUIDING PRINCIPLES: Universality, Ethics, Excellence, Social Insertion, Flexibility Integrality, Autonomy and Diversity.
SOCIAL COMMITMENT: Production, development and diffusion of knowledge.
One of Feevale’s goals is to offer valued knowledge to its students, to prepare professionals who have global skills, and who are able to act in a borderless world. The Institution has the aim to make international cooperation relevant for the students’ and professors’ development in all fields. Academically, students, professors, researchers and managers’ mobility deepens the transnational bonds, creating useful connections to the development of research projects, publications, courses and universal knowledge networks. Feevale takes part in an international cooperation framework which is made up of 72 institutions established in 23 countries: Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, Mexico, Mozambique, Paraguay, Portugal, the United States of America and Uruguay. These cooperation agreements integrate scientific communities from different continents, intensifying the importance of the internationalization of education.
