The Federal University of Southern and Southeastern Pará[5] (Portuguese: Universidade Federal do Sul e Sudeste do Pará, UNIFESSPA) is a multi-campus public university, based in the city of Marabá, with campuses in Santana do Araguaia, São Félix do Xingu, Rondon do Pará and Xinguara.[6]a. The legislation that created the institution was sanctioned on June 5, 2013 by President Dilma Rousseff.

Unifesspa is the result of the dismemberment of the Marabá campus of the Federal University of Pará. In 2018, the institution held a total of 37 degrees; 28 in Marabá, 1 in Santana do Araguaia, 1 in São Félix do Xingu, 3 in Rondon and 4 in Xinguara. It also maintains three advanced poles in Canaã dos Carajás, São Geraldo do Araguaia, Jacundá and Parauapebas.

Although young, the university tries to construct its identity and vocation, having as main focus the agrarian question, verified in the preoccupation with the courses of Field Education, Agronomy and Law of the Earth, and; the great mineral enterprises, visualized in the courses of Mining Engineering, Materials Engineering and Geology.

In the Folha University Ranking (RUF; in portuguese: Ranking Universitário Folha) of 2017, UNIFESSPA ranked 192th among 195 universities surveyed, but the market criteria were not evaluated, a fact that forced down its grade; in the RUF, the courses better UNIFESSPA were Chemical Engineering and Agronomy. Its General Course Index (IGC; in portuguese: Índice Geral de Cursos) for 2016 was 2,2909; and the most qualified courses at the IGC were respectively the Chemistry degree and the Bachelor's degree in Agronomy.
