As the Committee for Culture and University Extension (CCEx) has the mission to function as an interface with civil society, in 2008, the Director of FMRP-USP, Professor. Dr. Marcos Felipe Silva de Sá, decided to allocate the building in the city center of Ribeirão Preto for Cultural Activities and University Extension. This would facilitate people’s access to activities organized by CCEx and by the History Museum of FMRP.
Thus, the building located at Avenida 9 de Julho, 980, now has the designation of Cultural and University Extension (ECEU) of FMRP-USP. It was established on November 14, 2008.
