Inspiring People to Expand Horizons
We need to go beyond
Our purpose is that international education becomes a path to the development of spaces and innovative solutions to global challenges, thus we aim at preparing leaders who will impact society actively, transforming the world through ideas that really change communities.
Boosting the Changes
The perception of real challenges in crucial areas for the development of American and Brazilian societies is the starting point for ideas that will significantly transform reality and inspire people creating quality tools that will drive inspiring initiatives.
Who do we want to inspire
We are aware that facing challenges is a hard task that requires the participation and collaboration of an increasing number of people with different talents, backgrounds and ideas.
With this in mind, we seek to connect people from different parts of society and share our purpose by addressing global problems effectively.
- Social Transformation
- Global Impact
- Strengthening of Brazil-US Partnership
The Northeastern regions of Brazil and the United States both have similar historical inheritances. They were cradles for the construction of two of the main countries in the American continent. Today, their diplomatic relations are intense and strategic: Recife is home to the oldest US Consulate General in Brazil and Boston has one of the most important Brazilian Consulates in the United States. Moreover, New England is the region with highest concentration of Brazilians in this country, and Portuguese is the second most spoken language in the state of Massachusetts.
Likewise, the academic mobility and business environment contribute to a high level relationship and facilitate the intellectual education of many professionals, with the Boston region as the center of the innovation world and the Northeast of Brazil with significant initiatives such as the Tiradentes Innovation Center in Aracaju.
Given the historical similarities and intense relations between the two countries and their Northeast regions, challenges raise the opportunity to create a space so people can interact and develop innovative ideas; improving the reality of their countries. Thus, Tiradentes Institute emerges as a bridge to intensify this interaction.
