About

Sonho antigo, em 1892, o político Rocha Pombo lança, na Praça Ouvidor Pardinho, a pedra fundamental de uma futura universidade. Mas, devido à instabilidade gerada pela Revolução Federalista que ocorria no Sul do Brasil em função da divergência entre as elites federalistas e republicanas, o projeto não foi adiante.
Foi apenas em 1912, quando avaliou-se que o Paraná precisava de mais profissionais qualificados, iniciou um movimento pró-Universidade do Paraná. Nessa época, as lideranças políticas também se mobilizaram em prol da criação da universidade.
No dia 19 de dezembro de 1912, Victor Ferreira do Amaral e Silva liderou a criação efetiva da Universidade do Paraná. Era uma época de progresso da economia paranaense, devido à abundante produção e ao próspero comércio da erva-mate. “O dia 19 de dezembro representou a emancipação política do Estado e deve também representar sua emancipação intelectual”, afirmou Victor Ferreira do Amaral.
Em 1913, a universidade começou a funcionar como instituição particular. Os primeiros cursos ofertados foram Ciências Jurídicas e Sociais; Engenharia; Medicina e Cirurgia; Comércio; Odontologia; Farmácia e Obstetrícia. Após ter fundado a Universidade do Paraná, Victor Ferreira do Amaral – que foi também seu primeiro reitor – iniciou com empréstimos a construção do prédio central, na Praça Santos Andrade, em terreno doado pela prefeitura.
Com a Primeira Guerra Mundial (1914) vieram a recessão econômica e as primeiras dificuldades. Dentre elas uma lei que determinava o fechamento das universidades particulares, numa tentativa do Governo Federal de centralizar o poder sob as instituições de ensino superior.
No Paraná era necessário então criar alternativas para evitar o fechamento da universidade. A forma encontrada na época para adequar-se à lei e continuar funcionando foi desmembrar a Instituição em faculdades autônomas, cada um reconhecida individualmente pelo governo. Durante cerca de 30 anos buscou-se restaurar a universidade, objetivo alcançado no fim da década de 40, quando as faculdades existentes, acrescidas da Faculdade de Filosofia, Ciências e Letras, foram reunidas como a Universidade do Paraná. Para essa unificação foi fundamental o apoio da imprensa e da comunidade paranaense.
Restaurada a universidade, em 1946 iniciou-se a batalha pela sua federalização. Flávio Suplicy de Lacerda, reitor à época, mobilizou as lideranças do Estado e, em 1950, passou a chamar-se Universidade Federal do Paraná, uma instituição pública e gratuita. Adotou-se o tripé Ensino, Pesquisa e Extensão, norteando as atividades da universidade em direção ao desenvolvimento da comunidade em que está inserida.
Com sua federalização, a instituição passou por uma fase de expansão. A construção do Hospital de Clínicas (1953), do Complexo da Reitoria (1958) e do Centro Politécnico (1961) representaram sua consolidação.
São 100 anos de história, marcada por perseverança e resistência. A UFPR é a maior criação da cultura paranaense, tendo sido eleita símbolo de Curitiba. Fruto da audácia de seus criadores, a UFPR é a mais antiga universidade do Brasil e motivo de orgulho para todos os paranaenses.

Student Reviews

Studying in Ufpr, Brazil
Provided by ESN rated 4 out of 5 stars

My university is public, very renowned and among the best in Brazil for my course. The university has exchange programs that enable many students to have international academic experiences. The teaching at my university was and is being very good, I manage to have contact with very competent professors, and with excellent didactics. Teaching is much more focused on theory...
