History, Mission and Vision of UCDB
The Catholic University Don Bosco masterfully fulfills its mission in education, which is to train professionals committed to social justice to contribute to sustainable development.
In its vision, it aims to be a national and international highlight for its entrepreneurship in education at the service of people and society.
The Salesian Mission of Mato Grosso MSMT, present in the city of Campo Grande since 1925, and in addition to many other activities in formal education, responding to the desires of society for higher education, instituted in 1961 the first Center Of Higher Education in the State of Mato Grosso, the Faculdade Dom Aquino de Filosofia Ciências e Letras (FADAFI), with courses in Pedagogy and Literature, aimed at the education of educators. The activities began in the beginning of the year 1962.
The need for the creation of other faculties followed, and in 1965 the Law Faculty (FADIR) was created. Later came the Faculty of Economic Sciences, Accounting Administration (FACECA) in 1970, and the Faculty of Social Service (FASSO) in 1972.
At FADAFI, several courses were created, such as History, Geography, Sciences (Biology and Mathematics), Philosophy, Psychology, and Undergraduate Teaching, constituting a well-established higher education institution. With a view to a future University, the MSMT requested the Ministry of Education and Culture (MEC), the integration of the Faculties, presenting a unified Regiment. Thus, the United Catholic University of Mato Grosso (FUCMT) was created by Opinion No. 1,907 / 76, approved by the Federal Council of Education, at the Plenary Session of June 6, 1965. The first General Director of FUCMT was officially Fr. Joseph Scampini.
The purpose of the Salesians to be present in the midst of the Brazilian and Brazilian youth, living with socio-cultural, political and religious wealth, in the light of the guidelines of the Catholic Church and the doctrine of the educator Don Bosco, to contribute to the Development of man was one of the reasons set forth in the Letter-Consultation, prepared by the Coordination of Planning, Evaluation, Research and Extension (COPAPE), FUCMT, from 1986 to 1989, and filed on December 20, Federal Council of Education, requesting the transformation into a university, by way of recognition, of the then United Catholic University, with the denomination of Catholic University Don Bosco.
The referred Letter of Consultation was approved by Opinion No. 000113, on February 21, 1991, when the Ministry of Education and Culture began its "Follow-Up Phase" to prove its academic-administrative maturity. Thus, on October 27, 1993, by Ordinance No. 1,547, of the Mystery of Education and Culture, the Catholic University of Mato Grosso (FUCMT) became the current Catholic University Don Bosco (UCDB).
"To be recognized nationally for quality in education and the production of knowledge and technologies at the service of people and society."
"To promote, through teaching, research and extension activities, the integral formation, based on ethical principles, Christian and Salesian, of people committed to social justice so that they contribute to sustainable development."
