Politica de extensão universitaria : o debate nacional e a experiencia da Universidade Estadual de Campinas




The university extension activities in Brazil have their story closely related to the idea of service rendering to the community. The Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP) was recently founded on a project that was planned for teaching research and extension. Its central aim _ to graduate highly qualified staff for the technological area of Campinas, in the state of São Paulo, and to develop national technology in important fields for the country?s economy _ has brought it close to the production realm. The concept of extension has followed the general rule, both in UNICAMP?s project and its history. The activities at UNICAMP?s Escola de Extensão (Extecamp), which was created to manage the extension teaching at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas, had a boom during the stressed period, 1988 ? 2001. The university premises have a fundamental role in its development and in the outlook of the school. The discussion at the Fórum Nacional de Pró-Reitores de Extensão das Universidades Públicas Brasileiras, created in 1987, brought about a conceptualization of the extension as a perspective of social interaction and care, to be subsumed under the teaching and research at the teaching and research at the university. A conceptual change like this involves replanning the University itself. In this context, we have tried to discuss new and wide perspectives for UNICAMP, which is so successful in its original project
