FGV declared a socially responsible organization for second consecutive year
Fundação Getulio Vargas has been declared a socially responsible institution by the Brazilian Association of Higher Education Institutions (ABMES) for the second year in a row. This recognition is the result of continuous work done by FGV’s Academic Records Office.
Guided by the principle that everyone is responsible for building a better future for Brazilian society, the Academic Records Office has been running campaigns to promote social awareness, a sense of equality and equity in the FGV community through volunteering activities. The aim is to raise awareness of everybody’s role as transformative agents for the formation of a fairer and more democratic country.
“We have been doing this work over the last three years and it has attracted participants throughout the FGV community,” says academic operations superintendent Rodrigo Pamplona.
These activities are also supported by the Education Ministry, which has guidelines for volunteering in basic and higher education.
ABMES represents private sector higher education organizations throughout Brazil, acting on their behalf in dealings with different governmental and nongovernmental institutions, and helping to strengthen private higher education in the country.
