New campuses

Campus construction is one part of the University of Brasilia’s expansion project. The commitment to expand the University’s teaching, research and extension activities to other communities located outside the development center of the Federal District was made official on October 19, 2007, at the University Council Meeting (CONSUNI). The document, “A UnB rumo aos 50 anos: Autonomia, Qualidade and Compromisso Social” (UnB reaching 50: Autonomy, Quality and Social Commitment), as well as the Letter of Intent, confirmed UnB’s entry into the Support Program for Restructuring and Expansion Plans of the Federal Universities (REUNI). The intention is to implement programs of higher education committed to regional development in the Federal District.

In view of the crisis faced by UnB in the first semester of 2008, campus installation was a hot topic in the CONSUNI and the CEPE (Council on Teaching, Research and Extension). For the first time in the history of the University, CONSUNI opened its doors to give the Federal District community a voice. In a meeting held on May 9, 2008, representatives of groups fighting for the installation of the public university in the cities of Ceilândia and Gama discussed the UnB expansion project into those cities.
