It is with great pleasure that I greet you and welcome you to the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto.
Your new Faculty is one of the most prestigious national and international teaching and research institutions in the fields of Psychology and Educational Sciences. You will be part of a community of about 2000 students attending different levels of education in various scientific areas and with more than 20% international students.
We are, therefore, a Faculty that is Open to the World, and that promotes the reception of all people, regardless of their origin, without barriers and without borders.
We are also an Inclusive and Diverse Faculty, which values people, promotes equal opportunities, accepts different points of view and rejects all types of discrimination.
A Faculty that assumes the umbilical relationship between teaching and research and that promotes quality teaching based on the excellence of the scientific knowledge it produces.
We are also a Faculty with a strong Social Impact, which promotes the transfer of scientific knowledge, influencing public policies and contributing to the well-being and quality of life of people and to a more inclusive and fairer society.
In the coming years you will be part of this community, you will learn from it and you will also have the opportunity to make your personal contribution and leave your mark on this almost fifty-year history.
Welcome to the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto.
Pedro Nobre (Dean FPCEUP)
