Universities in Florianópolis

Universidade do Sul de Santa Catarina

A private university that was founded in 1964, the Fundação Universidade do Sul de Santa Catarina, or UNISUL, has four campuses located in the capital and the southern part of Santa Catarina each comprised of several sub-campuses and has a student body of approximately 30,000 students. The UNISUL takes pride in being a socially responsible and technologically advanced university, and it offers one of the most extensive distance learning programs in Latin America. ISA classes will be held at the Ilha Centro Trajano and the Ilha Centro Dib Mussi locations of the Florianópolis campus, located half a mile apart in the central downtown area of the island. Other class options are available with local students at sub-campuses in the greater Florianópolis area including Pedra Branca.

Volunteer Opportunities with ELAP in Florianópolis

ELAP students will attend Fundação Universidade do Sul de Santa Catarina (UNISUL) if they are participating in an ISA Academic Program plus ELAP during the semester. Students will work 5-10 hours per week at a local host organization while attending classes at the host university. The ELAP placement will begin 1-2 weeks after the first week of classes and end the week prior to final exams.

These placements have no affiliation with host university and are non-credit bearing, however all participants will develop an ELAP Portfolio throughout the program which includes reflective essays, group discussions, logs of hours, a supervisor evaluation and a certificate of completion.

ELAP students participating in the volunteer group project will not attend a foreign university or complete an ELAP Portfolio.
