In 2008, the Ministry of Education authorized the transformation of the Centro Universitário Positivo (UnicenP) into University.
"Universidade Positivo has great importance in my professional and academic path. As a student and collaborator, I found here a challenging environment for the development of skills, stimulating for the acquisition of new knowledge and open to new possibilities and technologies, with constant focus on human development. For ten years I accompanied the evolution of the group; lived many success stories and I think many are yet to come!" Dâmaris Souza De Cristo – Supervisor, Career Center of Universidade Positivo
