University Intramural Practice Plan

University Intramural Practice Plan (PPUI)

What is PPUI?

The University of Puerto Rico’s intramural practice plans promote, market, and provide the general community with professional services by way of its educational staff and supporting personnel. The plans established will be self-sufficient and will not depend upon the General Fund in any way. This intramural practice can be used to:

  • Support research, training, and service projects
  • Expose students to professional practice models
  • Develop students’ and professors’ potential

At the Río Piedras Campus, by virtue of Circular Number 48, Year 2004-2005, the Chancellor housed the University Intramural Practice Plan under the Office of the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research, and its Assistant Deanship of External Funding (DAFE, by its acronym in Spanish).

The electronic proposal record contains varied and key information about the principal investigator, collaborators, project’s duration and description, budget request detailed by external funding, institutional support and indirect costs.
