About

O fundador da UFBA – O primeiro reitor da Universidade foi destaque na trajetória do ensino superior. Nasceu em Salvador, em 1894, diplomado em medicina e fez especialização em cirurgia em São Paulo. Ao retornar, ingressou na cátedra de Patologia e Cirurgia e dirigiu a Faculdade de Medicina. Durante 15 anos de reitorado (1946-1961), liderou o processo de federalização e implantou a infra-estrutura física e de pessoal, escrevendo o primeiro capítulo de uma universidade integrada: Artes, Letras, Humanidades e Ciências. Logo no primeiro ano de reitorado a Universidade da Bahia, constitui-se, formalmente. Em 1950, passa a Universidade Federal da Bahia, integrando as escolas isoladas e instituindo outros cursos. Em quinze anos sob o reitorado de Edgard Santos, a UFBA floresceu nas áreas de artes, humanidades e saúde. Para a Bahia, Edgard Santos trouxe nomes do cenário internacional; construiu o Hospital Universitário; criou o Centro de Estudos Afro-Orientais e os campi do Canela, Federação e Ondina. Em seu reitorado, a Bahia ganhou projeção, com destaque para Dança, Música e Teatro, primeiros cursos universitários do gênero no país. A UFBA alicerça, na década de 1960, dois importantes fenômenos da cultura contemporânea: o Cinema Novo e o Tropicalismo. A Instituição cresceu, modernizou-se, mantendo a identidade do período Edgard Santos.
