The PUCPR International Office is the hub for all themes related to international higher education at the university. The office is located at the main administration building of the Curitiba Campus and is made by a team of nine very enthusiastic specialists, all highly committed to making PUCPR a truly international university. This small but very active team is divided into two Coordinations – Mobility and Special Projects – and is complemented by 12 International Agents: professors indicated by the Deans of each one of PUCPR’s Schools and campuses and dedicated to acting as liaisons between the central Office for Internationalization and their academic units. The PUCPR International Office is proud to be the entrance of the international community at PUCPR. Count on us for a warm welcome and all necessary support.

Our mission
PUCPR’s Office for Internationalization, aligned with institutional principles, aims to promote and support the internationalization efforts of the university as means to achieve excellence in academia by preparing citizens and professionals in the global community and at all levels: undergraduate, graduate, research, extended learning experiences and innovation. 

Our vision
Promoting PUCPR as a portal that welcomes and projects people, ideas, and cultures in a borderless environment, aiming at citizens and professionals learning experience in the global community.

Our values
Interculturalism – aligned with the history of the Brazilian peoples, which welcomes and integrates different cultures into one, where the culture of tradition is valued and encouraged.
Inclusion – every genuinely internationalization process is inclusive, as it diminishes physical and cultural distances and it embraces everyone into a single global community.
Innovation – ongoing search for creative, innovative and transformative forms of internationalization of the institutions and people involved.
Solidarity at a global level – expansion of the scope of PUCPR’s community solidarity action beyond the university’s borders.
