Education Support Center (FGV NAP)


FGV NAP offers specialized education and psychological support to students and teaching support to professors and coordinators, encompassing all the undergraduate courses run by FGV’s schools in Rio de Janeiro and the Federal District.

FGV NAP is a support channel for students, which seeks to meet their emotional, cognitive and other learning-related needs, both individual and collective, in the interdisciplinary and dynamic world of higher education.

The center develops strategies to assist students and, through active listening and counseling, it aims to understand their demands in order to establish better educational conditions to favor the intellectual and emotional development of these young people in this new stage of life, thereby attempting to prevent academic failure.

In addition, FGV NAP actively seeks to learn about students’ experiences in their academic activities, responding to their queries, suggestions and special needs.


FGV NAP’s functions include the following:
Offer educational and psychoeducational support for academic practices, study activities, monitoring and students’ cognitive development;
Hold workshops, discussions and talks about topics of relevance to students’ intellectual and emotional development;
Help students overcome challenges, establish new interpersonal relationships, live with differences and adapt to their new social environment;
Hold meetings with class representatives and other student organizations;
Monitor the academic performance of students during each academic semester, proposing educational strategies to help them overcome possible difficulties they may be facing;

Through individual or collective counseling, minimize the natural difficulties encountered by students during their course, provide psychoeducational support to restore their self-esteem and create better teaching conditions for their individual maturity and development;
Supervise the process of complementary curricular and extracurricular activities in accordance with requests made by course coordinators;
