The Departments are the organizations of teachers responsible for creating and formulating projects for education, research and extension. They each consist of their own Departmental Assemblies and the Chief Executives. The Departmental Assembly is composed of faculty in the Department blended with the voice and vote of the effective teachers of UFSJ.
The Head of Department and Deputy Chief are elected by faculty members who participate for a term of two years (resolution disciplined by internal CONDS)
