University of Brasília

About US

Established on April 21, 1962, the University of Brasilia (UnB) is the utopia of Brazilian anthropologist and educator Darcy Ribeiro. Since its inception, the University has been committed to producing state of the art knowledge and promoting citizenship for the transformation of Brazil; giving it a national reputation for excellence in research, teaching, and extension. Currently, UnB has approximately 2,308 teachers, 2,692 dedicated staff, 30,727 undergraduates and 8,913 graduate students. The University houses 26 faculties and schools and has 18 centers dedicated to specialized research on four campuses: the Darcy Ribeiro Campus (main campus) and three other sites (Ceilândia, Gama and Planaltina). Having been recently elected the fourth best university in Brazil and eleventh best in Latin America, UnB is tops in the evaluation criteria set by the Coordinating Body for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Students (CAPES) in areas such as Anthropology, International Relations, Geotechnics, Geology, Biological Sciences, and Mathematics. In its efforts to spread the name and structure of one of the greatest Brazilian universities to the four corners of the globe, the University Administration, supported by the Advisory Committee for International Affairs (INT), relies on exchange programs and the cooperation with international organizations and post-secondary institutions.
