The history of the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro begins in 1950, with the foundation of the University of the Federal District (UDF, Universidade do Distrito Federal). Through all these decades, the UERJ grew and took root as one of the major universities in the country. Its importance in the Brazilian academic environment can be attested by the quality of the higher education offered, the value of its scientific production, the hundreds of extension projects in development, the promotion of culture, and the countless services provided to the public.
