Extension and Outreach
In addition to regular educational activities, research, and extension courses, the Department of Education of PUC-Rio offers several services for the students and educational community of the institution, as well as for the general public. In this way, the department offers its expertise in multiple initiatives to support teaching and learning at PUC-Rio.
The Community Classes Support Center - NAPC has operated since 2005 in the coordination of free Extension Courses for the training of community educators. The Center is one of the fruits of the Community Roots project, implemented in 1998 by José Carmelo Braz de Carvalho in partnership with the Vicarage for Social Charity of the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro.
