Something fundamental to know: UFG is a public, secular and free University. What does that mean? That it belongs to everyone, regardless of religious belief, social class, sexual orientation, race/color, ideological / party affiliation, or any other specificity. It also means that it is maintained by federal public funds, that is, from the taxes paid by all of us.
What's more, UFG is a place where respect for socio-cultural diversity and freedom of expression are central values, protected by the University Statute, which ensures respect for everyone and the pluralism of ideas, without discrimination of any kind.
