Outreach (Extensão, in Portuguese) involves interdisciplinary, political-educational, social, cultural, scientific, technological and innovative aspects, promoting transforming interaction between UEL and sectors of the society. This comprises a participative pedagogic process and practical application of knowledge.


Outreach activities are interventions which directly involve and impact communities external to the University and that are inseparable from teaching and research activities.


The Pro-Rectory of Outreach, Culture and Society (PROEX) is currently involved in the management and/or control of more than 200 outreach programs, involving hundreds of professors and thousands of students.
